Garden Thursday

Iza:  The big deal in the garden this week is the sedums.  They are gettin "brick red" now.


The Big Thing says he has a MAJOR border upgrade planned.  He is gonna dig up the ENTIRE border and plant crocus bulbs, tall blue fescue grass that he been growin carefully all year, an leave spots fer yellow dwarf marigolds next year.  That'l be cool!

The Sedums...

They look nice around Skeeter's Place, dont they?
Ya may remember that they were lighter last time...



I was lookin all around Skeeter's Place.  It was nice.  The flowers and the empty spots were both good.  Its OK, ya can get close too.  We dont mind and it is a good spot ta sit.  Very calm.

Its a nice place ta be near outside.  Feels "real friendly" iffen ya know what I mean.  I never met Skeeter, but I feel real good near his spot.  We would have been good friends.  I can tell.  And LC is right next to him over here...
The Salvias continue ta look cheerful.  We are almost getting bored by the salvias being bright red alla time.  But they won't last much longer an we will miss them when they are gone.
They have an innerestin smell, too!

Here we got the wave petunias.  They dint grow well during the drought, but they have been recoverin.  Along with the weeds.  The Big Thing says they will fade from the cold soon, and he will just scrape the whole area clean of weeds then...
 There are still a few butterfly bush flowers bloomin.  I think the butterflies are gone though.  This purple one is nice...
 The white one looks good too...
Here are 2 flats of Blue Fescue that will become a permanent border along with yellow an purple crocuses.  The Blue Fescue will make a clumping mound about 10" high and wide...
And iffen ya look up a bit, ya can see the wave petunias that were planted on the hanging cherry tomato basket.  We dint get any cherry tomatoes this year.  Something ate all the leafs and by the time they grew back, there wasn't time ta grow the tomatoes.  So it was nice ta have something colorful in the basket...

Well, let's go  out an sit in the sunpuddles on the lawn.  There are still some over here by the apples.  Mebbe we will see a vole running around and ya can go chase it.

Nip an treats up on the deck as usual...  And the deck door is open cuz Ayla is chillaxin in the garage.  She just LOVES the warm car hood!  Litterboxes down the stairs an to the left.  Or outside.  ;)

Thanks for the invite to wander around! Our fescue bit the dust this summer, it just was to darn hot. Bummer, it was great yakkin' grass. Daddy moved our salvia to a sunnier spot; it's been struggling a little bit. The hummerbirds love it, so we want to keep it going.

Whoops...we just saw a vole...gotta go!

Your garden is still beautiful.
You have such nice spots to explore and sniff. And LC & Skeeters resting places are beautiful amongst the flowers.
