It’s a beautiful day in the park.

I pruned Lantana and weeded.I was expecting lots of weeds, but found few.

Copper Plant has been defoliated.

Muhly Grass and Firebush are looking good.

The soil is very wet!

The garden is the most beautiful I’ve seen it in a long time. In particular, Texas Star Hibiscus, Salvia, Beauty Berry, Plumbago, and Firebush are all looking very good.

I was disappointed that only the Master Gardener and I were present.

The weather was beautiful today. I got a lot of work done including weeding and pruning.

Butterflies, Bumble Bees, and a green Hummingbird were all present.

Salvia, Texas Star Hibiscus, Plumbago, Firebush, Firecracker Plant, Pomegranate, and Prickly Pear are all blooming and beautiful.

I pruned Lantana that was drooping over the walkway. I thinned Muhly Grass and Salvia.

The soil is cooler.

Labor Day.

It was a nice summer day in the garden.

Salvia is taking over. I need to remove some of them. It is in full bloom and looks very healthy. Flowers are more of a pinkish red than they were earlier in the summer. Maybe this is caused by shorter days?

Firebush, Yellow Lantana, Plumbago, and Texas Star Hibiscus are beautiful and in bloom.

Thursday, 9/3/15

I noticed aphids on Butterfly weed today and toadstools in the grass in the park.

Plumbago and Firebush are beautiful. The Firebush I transplanted is struggling, but I think it will make it.

I had to cut my visit short due to rain.
