It seems we have had more bees, butterflies and dragonflies this year than ever before or maybe I've had more time to enjoy. Hot, hot days and they just flutter around the garden drinking in their nectar. It is a beautiful sight.

This past weekend was very nice, 80s and no humidity and it was easier to work outside. We are back in the 90s again this week with slim chances of rain for the weekend. We have been trimming, cutting down and trying to get the garden back under control - yeah right. Don't know if that will ever happen but we are sure trying. We are going to start watering on Friday and Saturday nights so we can pull, dig and get the weeds/tree sprouts out and mulch down. We have our work cut out for us and hopefully will have a garden we can enjoy more and work less next year. haha
