At the start of the weekend, daughter Rita came over to help me get rid of some of the weeds that had taken over my garden. She uncovered the angelonia that was hiding behind - or under - the cosmos and the weeds. I asked her to move it up front.
I really can't believe the cosmos. They are about five or six feet
The butterfly bush still has some blooms, but is really almost done for the year. But the best thing that made me really happy was that after the whole long summer without a single monarch butterfly, they finally found me. I guess they are on the way to the coast to migrate. Two of them have spent the past few days on my butterfly bush!
It is so sad that their numbers are so depleted this year. It really did warm my heart to see the pair in my garden.
We also found a pair of crickets who seemed to have taken up residence for a while on my mums. So much better on my mums than in my house.
Rita did a great job for me.
On Saturday, Lisa stopped over. She had her camera with her, and took these two pictures while she was here.
Lisa always takes beautiful pictures.
