Our Pink Yard

Fall is definitely arriving — shorter days, cooler days, colder nights, birds migrating, leaves changing colors, flowers wilting, fewer bugs … and we now have a pink yard.

A small smartweed (Polygonum sp.) blankets large areas of our yard.


The small plants average only two  to nine inches tall.

Actually, they’re taller than they look; their spindly stalk doesn’t support their lengthy weight.

The weather forecast still calls for several more cloudy days with rain and/or storms possible.

I plan to continue enjoying the pink yard. It brings a grin or giggle whenever I look out over it.
