What is this plant?

I have this  plant near my house. I have no idea what it is. If anyone knows please let me know. It grows very aggressively. It is pretty in the fall when it blooms and when the leaves change.

The stalks are woody in the winter time. Yes you see a dog it is BabyGirl.

The Sky

 

 

 

 

 

This is a Hosta s my sister gave me 2 of them. I couldn’t remember the name so I took this picture to ask her the name again. When I looked at the picture on my computer I noticed how beautiful the sky was day before yesterday.

Wordless Wednesday

Blooms

I am almost finished painting and am I glad because my knees and hips are all wore out. The last couple days I kept thinking how did I do this for a living and on big houses. I believe this will be the last time I will be painting any large structure or at least one that you need a ladder for. I just have some touch up to do then on to the porches. I am trying to get this all done before the snow fly’s again. My garden has been a little neglected but I am confident I can tidy it all up after a little rest. My neighbor Korie’s  puppy Mak got free and he always runs to my house. This time I wasn’t home and he managed to explore all threw my tomato garden. They are a little tipped over but no real damage done. This little 5 month old puppy is 45 lbs! During one of my breaks while painting I went threw and checked to see if any picking was in order and sure enough I had cucumbers ready ! I picked 17 of them. The picture doesn’t show 17 because I ate a couple. I also picked 2 onions but I ate one of them, Also 3 tomatoes but I ate them. I made a cucumber,tomato, onion  salad.

My Stargazer Lillys made their appearance

My Rose of Sharon has just started to bloom. The added bonus is my neighbor brought me over a bunch of slips to root of all colors. I can’t wait to get them planted and on their way.

Last year I was not able to get pictures of all the color changes of my Quick Fire Hydrangea. This year I made sure I did. (on a painting break lol)
