Morning Dove

pretty much what I would do with Daniel too 

I would take cuttings of salvia now and move it and clematis in late Sep/October.  

I find most salvias move surprisingly successfully whatever their size

Red hot today.    

Cut lawns, picked more blueberries, beans, toms, carrots and some apples.  The blueberry crop has been huge this year.
