from July 4th.
LOVE my "cemetery" flower bed.
The flag is new.
We found it at a market/garden shop.
I love the WELCOME HOME
and the veterans boots and rick sack on the porch.
Earlier in the day,
I took these at dusk,
all of the moss rose were in full bloom.
I REALLY cut the Butterfly Bush back this spring.
Guess it didn't hurt it,
the blooms came out full
and the shape looks just right . . .
for this year, at least :)
Pretty, Pretty Front Yard.
Hoping it says WELCOME
to those walking by.
yes, the ones bought for the church alter on Easter.
These come from a plant my mother-in-law
received one Easter.
The blooms, on their best day,
looked like fried eggs . . .
clean, crisp white with a yellow yolk center.
Cucumbers on the left and green beans on the right.
I know, we planted late,
but, hopefully, we will get a decent crop.
