Garden Thursday

IZA:  Well, Im glad it is nice weather this week.  The serious rain last week was welcome but it coulda waited one day!  But I got some nice stuff ta show off today.  Please come along an join me as we walk around...

Ya may remember the Sedums looked like this 2 weeks ago.  Light pink an pretty...

Well, note they are gettin darker red.  Its not the lighting.  And they will get darker red by next week...

Heres a close-up...


This is one of the 2 the goldenrod patches.  They are looking happy... 


The Salvia still look great after months of bloom.  They will DEFINITELY be back next year, but in different places.  I think several separate patches of them farther back (cuz of their height)...

The asters are still bloomin well after a few weeks.  And thats good for them cuz they are perennials!   They are kinna floppy though, so I have advised TBT ta give them some support next year...

I saw a hummerbird earlier today, which surprised me.  It got cold last night, so TBT said they were probably left by now.  He was glad I pointed one out ta him.  That means he will keep their feeders up another week "just in case".  Sorry there wasn't one around durin the tour...

Well, that's the good stuff this week.  As usual, there are snacks an Niptinis up on the deck.  And I am pleased ta announce that TBT has poached a chick-hen breast and diced it up just fer us.  No nasty spices or salt or nothin just chick-hen.  And fresh rainwater of course..
