My Eucomis (Pineapple Lily) ended up growing quite a bit since I showed it to you.
Look at its cute little green hat.
Maybe someday it will look like this gorgeous specimen:
Unfortunately my back yard is not looking very good. I began noticing the big brown spots a few weeks ago. Last week I mentioned it to DH
and he said the grass is being killed by grubs. He went out and dug into the brown areas and, sure enough, there were grubs.
I cut down my favorite red dahlias that were full of powdery mildew. Then I decided to separate them.
This little area at the end of the deck still looks decent.
There is really nothing left to do with the deck containers, but wait until we get a hard frost and then put them all away for the winter. Right now it is too early to put them away because they will continue to grow until the temps are below freezing. I store them in a crawl space that is still very warm. I also think the frost kills critters that may be alive in the topsoil.
I am thinking that it will be about two more weeks before I put them into winter hibernation.
I was shocked earlier in the week when I looked out the kitchen window and saw my biggest arbor looked like it was falling down. Turns out it's all rotted at the bottom.
Last January our Exec. Housekeeper at the hotel retired. Today she invited me and our Food & Beverage Director to lunch at her home.
She made us a nice Mexican chicken wrap lunch and then sent us home with this platter of fall candy.
I am getting packed for another weekend jaunt. I was doing laundry and picking out clothes before I decided to take a break and post.
I think this will be good to wear to work tomorrow with black pants--It's a bit loud, but I like bold clothing. It will also be a comfy travelling outfit since it resists wrinkles and I will be leaving right after work. Can you see that creature's face at the top? It's a bracelet!
I am in an orange mood--BRIGHT orange! I love this navy blue and orange ensemble. I will wear it with jeans--I don't wear jeans very often, but I can't do the dressier black pants that I like with this because it just screams Halloween!
One of these weekends, I need to stay home or I will never get that painting done! Have I ever mentioned that I really hate to paint?
I hope you all have a great weekend. If you have nothing to do, you are all invited to come to my house and paint.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
