Just 'Cause You Asked!!!!

Welcome to JUNE!!!!! Where did May go????? Mercy Me--time is a-flyin'!!! Several of you have asked to see more pictures of our yard. I've been showing you individual flowers until today, so now I will show you some pictures of ALL of the flowers in our yard blooming (mostly Roses and Lilies right now). Above is our front yard --looking from the street toward the house. Besides the Roses and Lilies, you will notice our American flag --which we proudly fly year-round. Below are more!!!

This is our Lampost Flowerbed in the front yard. This round bed is full of beautiful Lilies and Pansies right now. After the Pansies are gone, we will probably plant some Vinca--which also loves full-sun.

This is one of our three Rose flowerbeds (not counting all of the Roses in containers along the driveway). This is the biggest bed --and is close to our garage. Note the Semps along the sides.

Here's another view of the Lamppost Flowerbed --full of Lilies and Pansies. You can see some of the new Road Flowerbed in the distance.

Here's one more view of one of our three Rose flowerbeds. Wish you could be here to walk in our yard and SMELL the Roses.

And finally, here is a view of the new flowerbed which George built last Fall. It is now filled with beautiful color. In this bed are planted Periwinkle (on left), Semps, Tulips, Irises, Roses, Lilies and Daylilies. Right now, only the Roses and Lilies are blooming, but the Daylilies are close to blooming.

The big flowerbed on the side yard (where the Daffodils, Tulips and Irises are planted) is full of Lilies and Daylilies --neither of which have bloomed yet. That bed is in a shadier area --so things bloom later there. I'll feature that bed at a later date.

Hope you enjoyed seeing our yard in early Summer!!!!!! Since I cannot walk in the yard right now, George is so good to bring lots of pictures inside for me to enjoy. AND--he brings a fresh rose in for me every single day!!!!

Hope also that all of you had a wonderful holiday weekend.
