Last Bits of Summer

A week ago Sunday Lucas and I picked Olivia up from a sleepover birthday party and went to the greenhouse. I was looking for some Norway Pine to plant in the yard, but they were more than I wanted to spend. Instead they had smoothies and we enjoyed what has turned out to be the last fairly warm day. 

They have a large selection of bushes and trees, but they are pricey. Would you spend $100 on a 4-ft tree?

 They have a little bridge over a little bit of water. We thought it would be neat to incorporate this into our Koi pond (that obviously isn't happening this year).
I traveled to Anchorage again this past weekend and would love to go back to this day and the little bit of heat the sun was giving us. It was 28* this morning and my gardens are frozen. I have a horrendous amount of work to do before winter sets in and I hear it is snowing 200 miles east of here. I've better get crackin'!

Your beautiful gardens are frozen! That is very depressing. You work so hard for such a short time of enjoyment. This summer has not been good for gardening here in Misouri due to extreme heat and no rain. Gardening is a challange no matter where you live, I guess. . .
