Daylily-Three blooms on one stem.
Peace Rose-This is one of the most reliable, consistent of roses. Needs practically no attention, just a little Miracle Grow and water. Heavily scented.
Another Peace Rose, blooms more yellow than pink.
My beautiful Dothan had to come and pose for his portrait.
This is not an easy rose to grow: but when it is grown well, this rose lives up to its name-perfection.
I've had this rose for 13 years and moved it around a few times. It still performs well. Likes sun.
This is in our front yard.
Red Knock-Out Roses
Indestructible, prolific, but not one of my favorites because they have no scent.
This is beside my front steps and we have to keep cutting it back it grows so fast.
This rose is simply named 'Love'. One of the trio of Jackson & Perkins 1980 AARS winners, 'Love, Honor and Cherish'. I like this rose, it has medium-sized flowers in crimson and white bicolor. The bicolor holds for the life of the flower.
A new Begonia for my front porch. My grandmother always loved her beefsteak begonias. I believe they are easy to propagate. I'll have to try it.
I'm picking baskets full of squash from our vegetable garden.
I have two of these planted on the new arbor, but mine aren't blooming yet. This is a thornless, raspberry scented running rose, a favorite of mine.
I recommend you check your local library for Gertrude Jekyll's lovely book "Roses For English Gardens".
My son, Jeremy, gave me this orchid last year for Mother's Day and it started blooming again this Mother's Day. I have it in the library beside an artificial pink orchid. They both look real!
Good lighting from this window.
I put flowers on my new wall collage I put up yesterday in my living room.
I changed out some plates, put in some hens in place of roosters next to my china cabinet.
And of course, played with Ms. Wilma.
I hope your weekend and this following week is filled with Joy and Love,
Go outside and plant something.
from me and Wilma
