Here are some views of the yard and garden taken over the last two weeks.
This was taken at Easter...
...here, you can see the roses behind the iris. The first blooms are almost gone now. We're hoping for rain in the next couple of days, and I hope that will make them bloom again.
Hawthorne tree in bloom with Knock Out roses in front.
This looks like a good woodpecker tree. It's across the fence in our neighbor's yard
I'm glad it isn't in ours!
Over the years, we've spent a fortune having huge old trees taken down.
Now, don't be upset...we've always had an arborist decide if they were in decline or dead.
I know y'all have seen a bazillion double Knock Out roses, but I thought this photo was interesting, because it looks like the roses are beaded. Hubby misted them before I took the photo, and it isn't edited to make it look like that...I wouldn't know how to do that anyway.
Here are a few more shots I took today while walking around the yard.
Clematis...I forget the name...oh, it's Inapoticome forgetanamia.
Sorry, pitiful gardening joke...when I can't remember the name of a plant I always call it that.
A "faux" bird house in the far edge of the yard. Since it sits on the plant stand, Hubby closed the opening so birds wouldn't nest in it. Don't want the cats to get the birds.
Before you go, let me
show you my favorite rose, which performs well regardless of the weather.
The bush grows 6-8 ft high.
It's a David Austin rose called Teasing Georgia.
You can read more about it HERE.
They have a wonderful fragrance.
Last, here is one of my sedum and succulent pots...
I love it when they fill the pot and look so lush.
Thanks for taking a walk in my yard and garden. I'm joining
