Our spring and summer seasons were both very wet.....resulting in a really great fall foliage season. It's been raining leaves for the past few days.....meaning we'll be spending the weekend sucking them up for compost. Good thing I can just ride around on my little lawn tractor and crunch and scoop them.
Some of the shrubs around the patio have always seemed kind of blah -- why did the previous owners plant them??? This year we finally realized what this one brings to the party.......it's almost fluorescent in its coloring....really spectacular.
