roses and coleus...

got a cloudy day here this morning and rain coming soon...

something has been after the roses all summer...

I think that's all DH gets done is dusting the roses...

but they are still pretty even with the dust...

took these photos Monday when we had full sunshine...
nothing like that today...
got a chance of rain now through Friday...
hoping we get enough that we don't have to water for awhile...
:)
the willow is dropping leaves now, too, along with the walnuts...
not a lot yet, but more every day...
achy today...
because of the rain...
doing laundry and need to get a shower and get dressed soon...
laying low today...
:)

tick tock, tick tock...

summer is slipping by....
too fast...
Chumley...
out for a ride with mama...
on the mower...
taking pics and enjoying the wind in his ears...
needs a trim...
he has this skeptical look to him...
of course its not his environment...
we had nothing to do with it....
:)
that's our story and we're sticking to it...
have good days...

let's take a walk through...

found these fun metal flowers at the local Family Dollar store...
I got 3 for the newly transplanted hostas...

the other end of the island...

ferns are very small but still a really nice added texture to the beds...

naked ladies have arrived...
and...
the neighbor gave us all of his...
so we dug them and transplanted them here...

the new hydrangea we added last fall...

its grown some...
it is in the shaded area...
going to love having one on this side of the yard...

I am sore but moving...
getting better each day...
only to go out and do something else and then...
come in and heal up again...
:)
I am so seeing signs of fall...
its going to be early this year...
have good days...

the "new" rose garden is taking shape...

we started this last year when the area on the other side of the house flooded...

we had to find some place fast to put the roses that were under water there...
been working on it here and there...
rain today and tomorrow...
we need it...
have good days...

the front...

all those brick borders were pulled out, iris dug out and separated and put back...
then the border went back...

thinned out and cut back...
raked out...

evergreens cut back a bit from the bottom and raked out...

load after load of debris...

I worked on this part earlier last week...

sedum is starting to bloom in places...
taking a down day again...
might end up being the whole week...
LOL
ya gotta do what ya gotta do when you can do it...
I'm doing ok...
just feeling the "old" part today...
have good days...
