Working in the garden......

The last 2 days have had low humidity and cooler temperatures.  It was perfect for working outside.  This year I am making an attempt to have the whole back garden cleaned up before winter.  I will leave the coneflower heads.  As you can see the goldfinches love to lunch on them.  They will be the only dead stalks to clean up in the spring.  Another reason I like to leave them is for markers where the plants are.  I may move a few to new spots next spring and it will be easy to find them.

Glad you were able to get out and do clean up. We have been doing it also. Good day to sew today to stay dry. Chris

We have been more moderate here as well.... Dogs say, early and cold winter this year.... I sure do hope they are WRONG!!!

Yellow Finches have been on my coneflowers too. A friend wants some of mine and I will gladly give them, but I hate to deprive the birds. We have yard work planned for later in September, it can still get very hot here.

Love seeing the finches have a snack.

I did a bit of yardwork yesterday also. But I don't have any pretty pictures to share. Ha ha. All I could show is my composting pile.......and that is not a pretty site.

Here it has cooled off, but the humidity is still over the comfortable level at least for me. I do need to get out there and weed!
