Volunteer Phlox Flower ... in September!

While working in the yard Sunday, I noticed one lone Phlox flower, directly in front of Bird Girl. I'm sure it's happened to other's, but I have never had a Phlox flower outside of spring. What a sweet surprise!

Mission Accomplished

I planted the boxwoods last summer. This past June I laid landscape fabric and a brick edging ... and then it sat. I finally laid the mulch yesterday. It was a long, hot day, and I ended up filthy and exhausted ... but satisfied and happy that the chore was over.

A VERY Nice Neighbor

My neighbor directly across from me has been cutting the grass on my hill by the driveway all summer because it's too hard for me to do it.

The blue arrow points to the neighbor's house.
He had a heart attack about a month ago and isn't supposed to do anything strenuous, so he hired someone to cut his grass ... AND my hill! I nearly cried. Isn't that one of the kindest things you've ever heard of?
