For the last week or so, I have been greeted by my azaleas each
morning as I stand in front of my kitchen sink getting water for my
tea and sometimes for my coffee. They are so pretty. I wish they
were the everblooming variety that I have out around the patio,
but these only bloom in the spring.
You can see my big old Pecan tree that has not leafed out yet.
It leaves me huge piles of leaves every fall, but now this section of
grass is leaf free. Can't say the same for the rest of the yard because
my Live Oaks and my neighbors trees too, are shedding their leaves
now. Wow ~ leaves everywhere! I am trying to rake up as many
as I can and it's a never ending job. Carlos, my wonderful
lawn and garden man will be coming in a few days to blow the
leaves off the roof and clean out the gutters. Don't know how
we would live without Carlos! He is a godsend. My neighbor
Penni said that her husband could leave before she would ever
let her gardner go lol. Our beautiful and ancient Live Oaks are
gorgeous, but they really keep us all busy in the spring!
So I just thought I would pop in to say hi before Bentley and I
head back out to bag more leaves. Well, I rake and bag,
Bentley chases squirrels and cats and the sweet little cardinal
couple who live in one of our trees. I see the trash man has been
by so I can bring that can back in too. TGIF y'all!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
