I grab my bucket of garden tools and plan to start in the side yard pulling weeds and clipping back plants as I work my way around the house.
The bromeliads are in desperate need of thinning as they are encroaching on the brick walkway. The peacock ginger is slowly fading away until next spring and I can finally see my small collection of ceramic mushrooms again.
I discover this nasty little weed called Heartleaf Drymary is popping up in various parts of the yard where the grass is sparse from too much shade. If I ignore it, it’ll take over the yard in a heartbeat.
I spread some mulch and then decide to take a break. A large glass of ice cold water and an apple seem the perfect snack to enjoy while I sit on the deck and overlook my backyard.
I’m not seated long…more weeds to pull…potted plants need relocating…one idea after another pops into my head and I MUST do it now!
I grab some apple slices and stroll to the other side of the yard. The hibiscus seem to relish this time of year with an abundance of blooms.
This morning glory has decided to use this hibiscus plant as a trellis. They actually make quite a nice pair.
