If you’ve never taken a whiff of a Tea Olive shrub you don’t know what you’re missing! We have filled our yard with them because of its invasive sweet fragrance. There are three plants already in place to surround a future pergola (2010).

Last Fall, I picked up three of these American Beauty Bushes for $3.00 (3 gallon container) at Lowes. Now is the time to find incredible deals on perennials — and it will only get better through October and November. If you would like to see a close up of these truly BEAUTIFUL bright purple berries, click the picture. It will grow to approximately 6′ tall and there are two in place for the future pergola as well.

And I’m still enjoying the muscadines! 🙂

We’ve decided to hold off on all outdoor Fall projects this year except for a thorough weeding and mulching job, as we prepare for something MUCH more important… Zach and Sarah’s wedding!
