Encore Azaleas blooming now for the third time this year.
The flower garden, at summers end, as viewed from the deck. It seems overgrown to me. The July heat was brutal and in the triple digits and then we had thirteen inches of rain in August. It makes for weeds and garden viruses.
The Mini Penny hydrangea I have babied along all summer. It has many small blooms now. The rain has been exactly what it needed. Hydrangeas need water and shade. I fear this one has too much sun.
This sweet potato vine is in a terracotta pot and is a reseed from last summer. Sweet potato vines are easy and add that beautiful waterfall of chartreuse green to the garden.
In The-Nearly-Dead-But-Rescued category is this Butterfly Bush.
I bought it for two dollars and it is now thriving.
In Olive Out news I thank all of you for your darling comments on my last post about my Procedure-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named. Joe and I have enjoyed a mini vacation at our yellow house the past four days and I did not look at my computer or blog during that time. It was difficult to be away and I missed all of you. We cooked homemade pizza, broiled salmon, made pancakes, and chili.
Not all at once...wink.
We relaxed and enjoyed the long weekend.
I hope your weekend was filled with fun too.
