While some of you girls are bringing out pumpkins and fall wreaths,
summer continues to march on here in Texas.
The days are getting shorter and the mornings are cooler.
Fall is coming!
No Pumpkin Lattes for me yet though.
Usually by this point in the summer our plants are pooped out but this year they continue to thrive.
I'm hesitant to see the green go away as the seasons change.
If you've been around here much you know that we moved two years ago and planted the beds
last year. We've been pretty successful figuring out what works with very little that hasn't.
If you've been here longer than two years, you know that we had a big pond in our last
Maybe next summer...
See that tall grass behind our fence?
That's the green belt that runs behind our house.
It is mown (is that really a word?) as needed
and obviously somebody in charge needs to know
that it needs it. The critters do love it!
These are Cora Vincas and I'm so grateful to the person who developed them.
In our hot climate Vincas often die a slow withering death.
These are troopers!
It's been such a beautiful summer.
Have you had great luck with your plants?
Now tell me what was your favorite this year. Maybe we need to plant it too. :)
