Finally got outside today to do some yard work. The lawn needed to be mowed (several days ago) and the flower beds needed tending. I got the lillies cut back and some deadheading done. There's lots to do yet, but I didn't accomplish it all before it got dark.
This is the first year for the purple aster and the mums in the pictures. They look beautiful...and they're huge.
I have three more mums that aren't blooming yet. Hopefully in another week or so.
