In the early afternoon I went outside and decided to cut down most of the flower foliage in the front part of this bed. I almost always leave it until spring. But I am getting overloaded during the spring, so I decided to do as much as I can get done this fall.
I left the Sedum Autumn Joy because it's still looking pretty good. Here I go raving about it again, but it's been going strong since the end of August. What other flower gives so much for so long?
After I got tired of cutting down foliage, I went behind my garden to see what was happening back there. This is an old railroad track behind my rockwall.
I found some milkweed growing next to the tracks.
I used to be able to walk down the tracks for miles, but they are too overgrown now to walk very far. Huge trees grow right up the middle of them. In fact, the majority of the tracks have been removed.
It was pretty interesting, though, since I have not been back there in a couple of years.
I cooked a nice beef roast dinner. As soon as I clean up the kitchen, I am going to relax for the remainder of the evening.
Hope you are all having a good weekend.
