Well the dust has settled ... somewhat.
At least most of the flowers were
washed clean from the rain.
I still have to wash windows and do
more cleaning before my sister
arrives two weeks from today.
To see my sister...not clean house ;)
My Blog 'construction' or re-construction
is still going on but I'm
happy with how things are looking
Salvia and Lavender
The plants seem to have survived the
dust storm none the worse for wear
and are looking much better
now that our temperatures
I planted some Russian Sage, Big Twister Rush and Variegated Japanese Silver Grass to replace
the two Graham Thomas roses,
hydrangea and clematis
I planted this spring.
It seems it was a bit too dry and hot for
them in that spot so now they should
be a lot happier next summer.
The bees are enjoying the last of the flowers.
The old porch boards really show up this close!
Oh well they will eventually be replaced
with a new screened porch.
Hubby was going to do that this year but with
the record breaking heat that lasted up
until a few of weeks ago
that project will have to wait
until next year.
Just as well as we would have had to admire
it from inside the house because it was just
too hot to be outside!
It's been a strange year weather-wise.
We went from a LONG COLD winter to a
very short cold spring
and jumped right into a record breaking long
HOT summer that just ended recently...
to an early freeze which is to happen
Makes me shudder just thinking
what our winter could be like!
Time to split more wood I think.
How has your weather been this year?
