Those roofers better get a move on and get our roof fixed. They wait much longer they'll be blown off the top! Ugh! Signed, waiting in the wind.

Two completely different colors of foliage. Top left is a pic that gets late afternoon sun. Top right gets morning sun. Pic of shrub is morning sun side, other side is green. Aren't plants awesome? She will get a haircut before winter. 💈✂ Not the most favorite job in town.

The Japanese Barberry is banned in New York state invasive and choke out the native plants see him in the yard but none in the nurseries I'm not sure if that's the only one I got to look that up.

We've never had a baby plant in all the years we've had it. Might be our sub zero winters? Idk? @janelleabella

I know it Kari. Nobody likes the task of trimming this back each year. It's a painful job. It's ​at a pathway and I can't let it go. @KariSamuel

Do you have a lot of property? I don't really have too much but I found a spot for a small butterfly 🦋 garden that I can start on next weekend.

Lol. Mine hasn't had a trim in over 3 years. Last year was our "wait n see what we got" year. This year is our "pluck and clear out" year. I hope.

Hi Karen. Ive got a couple acres. I think a butterfly garden sounds fantastic. If you're not following her yet, you want to check out @treefrog44 . She is a great butterfly person. @KarCad

#macro #autumn on it's way. Shoulder surgery in July has left my arm a bit gimpy. I'm getting much better, but I'm shakey so macro photos are tough.
