So the only thing I did do was to work out in the yard. Frank, the guy who does our grass, also does my weeding for me because I just cannot do it anymore. My poor back and legs really stop me even though the spirit is willing. I will not let him touch my rose bushes though, so I cut them back and Frank weeded and cut back the ivy that threatens to overtake everything in the yard. It is amazing how much better everything looks. And bigger too.
We did only one side of the yard because the other side has poison ivy. Frank is HIGHLY allergic to it. So is Joe. I'm not. I started to pull it up, but there was so much that I just decided to get the poison and spray it all. According to the bottle it should die in 2 to 6 weeks. Frank has off from work every other Saturday, so in two weeks he will be back and we will (hopefully) finish the other side. At least that side is not as bad as the one we did today. It shouldn't take long to do at all.
In the meantime, I thought you might like to see some pictures of the flowers out there. Looking mighty nice these days.
|And more coleus|
|Lots of pansies. Although they are starting to wilt with the heat we have been having lately.|
The impatiens are doing wonderful. So pretty.
The hydrangea are starting to bloom, but I don't have any pictures of them. That will have to be another post.
