The lilies are fading. Many have died out and the stalks turned brown. I cut them out yesterday but keep the green leaves till they dry out and turn. They sure were pretty this year.
I started feeling better yesterday. So the new prescription of antibiotics works.Thank goodness. I went out yesterday to trim some branches hanging too low. I ended up trimming lots of branches and weeding the flowerbeds. It just felt great to be able to go outside and do something useful. I snipped out lots of those bird dropping trees that get into fence lines. You know those mulberry things.
We didn't get the rain that was forecasted so today we have to water the lawn. What can we do??:(
Hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend, so far.xo
Good for you for getting out but don't overdo it. I admire your energy!ReplyDelete
Such pretty pics of your blooms. Watering is no fun. I sure hope you get rain soon. Happy to hear you are feeling better. Take care, Susie.ReplyDelete
The season is marching onward! Before we know it, the mums will be blooming! I wish time would slow down some! xo NellieReplyDelete
No rain here in St Louis but over last weekend we got 5 inches of rain in Central IL. go figure!?ReplyDelete
My lilies did really well too this year. I wish there was a solution for those trees that grow up in the fences. I had to ask my neighbor if I could cut one that was on his side, it was bugging me and getting BIG. He said he was really attached to that weed but he would cut it just for me. Happy for you that your medicine is working.ReplyDelete
Glad you are feeling better. They keep forecasting torrential rain here, I think we have had about three spots!ReplyDelete
Your lillies are beautiful!ReplyDelete
Remember to take all your antibiotics, even if you are feeling better! Trust me, I am a doctor! (In my mind only.)
Glad you are feeling better. Being sick in nice weather really stinks. Your lilies are beautiful and they lasted much longer than mine did.ReplyDelete
I hate those volunteer trees too. Here we get a lot of maple trees. My sister has a mulberry tree in her yard which has wonderful berries on it.
I gave up on lilies years ago because they get so ugly...beautiful flowers though..Glad you're feeling better..We managed to get some of that rain..ReplyDelete
The lilies were especially pretty here this year, too and I do hate to see them fading. It means that summer is passing much too quickly. Glad you are feeling better. xo LauraReplyDelete
My lilies are about done and we are dead heading them today to clean them up. So happy you are finally feeling better and good enough to play outside. That tree trimming stuff leads to so many other things.ReplyDelete
