The weather could not have been more beautiful this past weekend, and this week.  Sunny skies, cooler temperatures, some hint of life returning in lawns, and the plants look a little perkier.

The back yard has been neglected, so I tidied it up a bit this weekend, and planted some burgundy mums on the grassy knoll and around Logan’s grave.

The burgundy mums around the corner fence are budding, as are the yellow ones on the Southern side of the front lawn.  Amazing how beautiful the lawn can be when some things aren’t trampling it.

One clematis bloom hangs on, hiding in the shadows of the mums.  I am sure it will be the last bloom for this season.

Flyer, at 11, is still perky, and loves joining me out front for her sniff-fest each day.
