Since I was off for the 4th I decided I needed to do a little yard work. It actually ended up being a lot of yard work. A gardeners work is never done. I put down two bales of pine straw in my front beds, planted several throw-away plants (from work), watered, weeded and put one additional pine straw bale down on this back bed. I was soaking wet when I finished.
My throw-away flower bed is looking a little bit better. Of course, who knows how many plants will live since July isn't typically the ideal planting time. Luckily, it came a good little rain right after I finished. Thank the good Lord above who must of heard my prayers. (I must say, not every plant in my throw-away bed is a throw-away plant. Just most of them).
The blooms of my hibiscus is so pretty I just had to snap a picture of it. I take this plant in every winter and set it back out every spring. Is that crazy or what?
