Rainy Thursday it is and good day to get chores done inside.
More yard work to do but getting there. Steve has been busy cutting grass, weeding and laying of gravel near the foundation. We decided we would try this as it will not shift as much as mulch does when it rains. Our place is sloped which is good in some ways but heavy downpours can be a problem.
After picture with some gravel.
I don't like mulch touching the house.
After this year, the mums in the swans will be taken out. They are getting to large for them. I purchased these mums last year in little pots from walmart for not much more than a dollar.
Mandevilla is just about finished. Something now looks like it's eating the lower leaves. All summer not a bug and now the leaves are almost gone at the bottom.
I wonder how many more years the lavender behind this pretty zinnia will continue to thrive under the dogwood tree? It's spreading for sure.

Til next time..Betsy
