My Yard

My yard and gardens are still looking good. There is such pretty color and my plants are growing and happy. The air is changing and the evenings are getting cooler. I can't tell that fall is just around the corner. I want to enjoy the yard as long as I can before I have to start cutting everything back for winter.

This plant is on my porch and I bring it in the house during the winter. Last year I had beautiful blossoms all winter.

A friend of mine found this water pump for me last year. What a great find, I love it and think it really looks good in my garden.

These are about the size of a dinner plate. They are huge and are just beautiful in my garden.

I'm sure everything is dry by you Kristin. Texas has not seen much rain and a ton of hot weather. I'm sure it will be cooling down soon.
