|Lavender ready to hang|
After that, I finally got a new pair of running shoes. Had to take them out for a test "walk", and it was a beautiful day for it. I managed four miles of walking pretty quickly and after about a half mile, my hamstring suddenly relaxed and felt the best it's felt since Sept 5th. I tried to run just a little to see how it was, and after about 100 feet it started to tighten, so I stopped. I think I've turned a corner ( I pray I'm not wrong) and my hamstring is finally healing. I know my hips feel better--not so tight!
Yard work! Oh yes, I did some yard work. I ripped out the sad looking Lily of the Valleys that have taken over my front garden, clipped more hostas, and swept up the teeny tiny leaves all over my driveway. It filled the Yardy to the top! On Friday, I plan on starting to cut down the back garden, and dig up some stuff--namely the goosey plants that have spread like crazy. Now that the sidewalk is done, I can start dreaming about what I want to do next year in the back yard. Better start saving my pennies--a fence is required, and I plan on buying many beautiful flowers. I missed flower buying this year! Easy on the pocketbook, but for the eyes, well, there can never be enough flowers in the world.

My mums have kinda gone crazy. I did not expect this when I bought these itty bitty potted plants last fall and planted them in the front of my garden. This year, they are HUGE and have fallen all over the place. I still find them beautiful, and I love the color.
|I think they look pretty together--ignore the leaves all over|
And finally, a friendly witch to welcome guests and Halloween kiddies :
