Yard Work

M’s been busy teaching this summer & hasn’t had enough time to work in the yard.  So, with (slightly) cooler weather and a few days break from teaching, he has been working outside. 
 
First, when he saw the calendar & weather were cooperating, he ordered a truck load of mulch.  Early Monday morning the truck arrived and dumped it’s load out front.  Tools-in-hand, Mel started distributing the mulch.  He paced himself – working 30 minutes outside & coming back in for some tea/water and rest for about an hour.  A few days it was too hot, and he had to stay inside from noon until 6 pm, and then he had 3 days of teaching.
 
He’s just about got the mulch distributed, but still has a bit to do.
 

Crape Myrtle, Elephant Ear (large Elephant Ear in the Background belongs to neighbor and is the ‘parent’ plant of ours), Hostas, Camilea

Same Plants – Nother View

Pyracanthia Bush – Neighbor was going to dig it up and throw it away, so M dug it up for her and transplanted it to our yard.  He cut it back to help with the transplant ‘shock’ and the dry, hot summer hasn’t been good for it.  Maybe it will live!
