Labour Day was spent at the Begonia Festival Parade in the morning, watching the bands march past, as well as local businesses and primary schools. It’s always fun to see people in the parade that you know, though there didn’t seem as many people there this year. I think a few people were away for the long weekend :).
Our front yard is tiny, yet chock full of trees (Japanese maples and a mulberry), roses and agapanthus, with a hedge. I raked, weeded and mulched, and replaced a couple of plants. Roses were deadheaded and ivy yanked out. The maples are beginning to turn, and even on a warm day like today, you begin to feel autumn is here.
