Fred is looking a little frayed around the edges
And across the middle, up one side and down the other and generally all over. Last week I was hoping to fight this "crud" successfully so I stayed inside instead of getting out in the cool weather. Failing to successfully fight it means that since Saturday I have barely been able to go out to fill the birdbaths and feeders.
The yard and beds are pretty much covered with Pecan leaves. Did you know that pecan leaves do not fall individually, the short stems each holding 10-12 leaves fall off in one piece. That makes for a much messier look. And the Hackberry tree has not even started dropping it's leaves.
I need at least another 10 bags of mulch out there. There is one good sized section that I totally forgot to put extra mulch on back in Sept, therefore the weeds have gained confidence enough in their strength that they have begun to advance over the entire area. My Friday project will be to set upon them like ducks on June bugs and show them who is really in charge out there.
The Cannas have to be thinned out and replanted. Some are going to Lisa and some to a friend of Randy's. I really need to do the new extension of the main bed so I can get the lavender plants in the ground.
And for readers unaware of the identity of Fred

Oh dear, Toni, I was hoping you were all the way to 'fight a bear with a stick' better. Hope you get there soon.
Fred will look better as soon as you feel better I am sure maybe I will tell Sharon that we should name our garden George what do you think?
Fred sounds very like my own garden at the moment Toni. Take heart and before you know it he (and you) will both be feeling 100% again I'm sure.
Toni I do hope you feel better soon!! Fred also sounds like my poor garden right now too!
Hope you get to feeling better Toni. My garden is so neglected it would take 3 weeks to straighten them out.
