June, Around Our Yard

As I said in a previous blog post, June has been a hot month for us so far this Summer. But--even still, we have had some beautiful color in the yard (besides our gorgeous Roses). So--today, I will show you a few shots around the yard. Above is our blooming CLEMATIS. It is doing what it is supposed to do-------climbing up that ole' telephone pole in our yard. It also loves to connect with the Redbud tree... Below are more pictures.

Here's one of the CLEMATIS blooms, up close and personal.

Here's some of our pretty SEMPERVIVUM (Hens and Chicks) in our yard.

Here's another picture of some of our beautiful SEMPS. We have them in all shapes and colors.

This is one of our first groups of DAYLILIES in our yard when we first moved here. These DAYLILIES were given to us by George's Dad ---so we call them the DAD ADAMS DAYLILIES.

This is our side yard flowerbed. We have LOTS of LILIES and DAYLILIES in this bed --and they are blooming like crazy right now... Wish you could smell them!!!!!

I cannot thank you enough for all of your emails and comments helping me deal with the problems I have been having with my left knee. I received good news and bad news from the doctor yesterday. The good news is that my knee is healing well from the surgery, and is looking much better. The bad news is that I have some severe arthritis in that knee which is causing all kinds of other problems. SO--the saga of my left knee isn't over yet.... Eventually I will get back to normal (I hope).
