A persistent morning glory vine slowly encircles the rose. Our vine blooms are all white.
Here’s another bud with a rose on the way. The rose bush is still producing flowers.
Sharing with you some of the plants and items in our yard.
Watching the progression of blooms is always a wonder to behold.
We had an nice surprise when an unexpected downpour came through right after 12 noon. We had a good 20 minute heavy shower. The air is so fresh and clean right after a rain. Earth’s local cleaning service…
This rose is blooming on the rose arbor in the front of our house. This beauty is soon to be joined by three others that are getting ready to show their color as well.
Remember back on May 24th we posted this picture (on the left) of a rose bud and said the rose was “on the way”. Well, here we are 5 days later and we have been blessed with a beautiful blooming rose that did get here. It is remarkable how Nature brings about so many dynamic examples of growth and development. There is something just so mystical about roses…
Here’s a little photo tour of some of the foliage in our yard.
The trees are now fully in leaf. The roses are beginning to bloom, herbs are growing very nicely and the honeysuckle is in full bloom and hopefully will help the hummingbirds. Seems like the grass needs mowed every third day. Spring is here, summer is on the way.
Let’s take a break from the cold and snow and remember how nice summertime is with flowers and bugs and warm temperatures.
This morning we woke to a very heavy frost. These pictures were captured at 10 o’clock, with the ambient temperature still at 28 F.
A heavy frost should not be a surprise: Winter Solstice is three days away!
