What I Found in My Much-Neglected Yard

This one would have been deadheaded but it was still being used:
I love zinnias! This guy was easily 3 inches or more:

It keeps working out that when the weather is really nice (perfect for yardwork) I'm too busy with other stuff to get anything done outside.
For the past two days I've been slowly working on making my yard somewhat presentable again. The flowers have been deadheaded, weeds have been pulled, dead plants plucked and disposed of. Sadly, most of this work has been in my backyard where most people won't even get to see it! But the grasshoppers and butterflies seem to be enjoying it, and I love looking out and not seeing a jungle.
