Color is returning to the yard. The grass is still green. The hateful lawnmower died this week. The gas tank, connected by a metal pipe to the innards of the engine, fell off. The pipe was cracked in two. It may have tried to break my leg last summer, but I got the last laugh. Now I need to buy a new lawnmower.
Turn of the Century is blooming again. I cut it back hard in July due to damage from Japanese Beetles.
Zinnias provide color. They seem more vibrant this morning.
The acorns have started to fall. Bumper crop. It sounds like tap dancing outside my window at night if I park the truck too close to the house.
It's 72 degrees. Hurricane Earl is in the Atlantic, threatening to land on the NC coast. We're not expected to see any rain according to the latest forecasts. No rain in sight for the next 10 days. The high today should reach the mid 90s, again. *sigh*
