August has been it's usual self so far as far as rainfall goes. We haven't had much at all. The usual garden visitors have been flitting by.
The Ladies have popped up all around the garden. Showing off their pretty little heads.
They are being well attended by the Hummers.
It has been unusually cool here. Temps only in the 80's. It has felt so nice out. I have been sitting on the patio a whole lot more lately. While sitting out enjoying the cooler weather I started wondering what kind of sales Perk A Lawn, the local Nursery, is having. It is 'that' time of year after all.
Imagine my surprise when I found a Coral Bark Japanese Maple on sale. Whoo hooo... I have wanted one of these beauties for some time. I just didn't ever want to pay a big price for such a treasure. This one I couldn't resist.
My DB being such a good sport dug the gigantic hole that this tree demanded. Thank you Dear.
Now I can sit here on the patio and see a beautiful tree year round. I know I will enjoy watching it grow.
Have you been out to the nurseries lately to see what is on sale? Beware, you might find something you can't live without.
