|Mr. Lincoln Rose (5/18/17)|
After the terrible drought last year, we have been blessed so far this spring with an abundance of rain.. Our yard LOVES it ---and we are thrilled to see everything which was totally brown last Fall turn green again...
Today, I wanted to show you some of this GREEN in our own front yard... BUT--I didn't want to stop with just the greens of spring... SO--I included some of this year's ROSES which are now blooming BIGTIME... Hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you to enjoy... Click on the pictures for enlargements.
