Yellow rose and blue petunia


 

 

 

 

 

Both of these flowers are in our herb and flower garden that we planted during our COVID-10 isolation. The yellow rose, pictured in yesterday’s post, has opened up and, as promised, is shining. We wanted to also share an image of this blue petunia.

Got three for you

1st photo taken

2nd photo taken

3rd photo taken

I missed the rose in the first photo blooming yesterday. So out for pictures I go, and there to my delight is another bud starting to bloom (second photo). And then while taking the second photo low and behold I spotted yet another bud hiding under the rose in bloom. Three roses to share with you all.

Rose in bloom near a crime scene

A pretty bloom

Well, maybe not a crime scene, however some dastardly critter (most probably a rabbit) has stolen one of the two remaining rose buds from this rose bush. I suspect that the perpetrator of the rose bud theft is also responsible for the wanton destruction of a couple of our sweet corn seedlings in the garden.

A couple more photos from out front

In the front of Roadtirement’s  “home base” in central Indiana we have a mulched strip on either side of the front door. Here’s a couple of images:

This is a new rose bush that we planted about a week ago. The first rose bud is showing some color. There are two more buds developing to the right of the big one.

There are lots of little mushrooms showing up in the mulch beds. The remnants of maple tree whirligig flying seeds are also in view, along with some unidentified green sprouts of some kind.

 

Some more things spotted in the yard

Here’s some more images of some plants around the yard. We did get a nice thunderstorm this afternoon. I won’t have to water anything today.

We decided to use both sink compartments for flower plantings. We’ll get another something for a bird bath. Since we have put up the bird feeder our backyard has become very popular with the neighborhood avian population.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rose bush is new, just got it planted a few days ago. We were surprised and happy to see the new bloom at the peak of the bush! Roses are so pretty…
