Hello Summer!

One of the good things about our “safer at home” staycation is having a lovely yard to spend time in.  Thanks to the already summer-like weather, the flowers in our yard are especially beautiful this year.

To celebrate the first day of Summer, we thought we’d invite you to take a stroll around our yard.  These are just a few of the flowers that are showing off.

Stargazer Lilly

The Stargazers are in bloom.

Knockout Rosebush

The Knockout Rosebush is … a Knockout!

Painted Petunias

These Petunia blossoms are the size of a quarter.

Climbing Rosebush

We call this the “Grandma” Rosebush because Steve’s Grandmother grew these.


The Clematis will continue climbing through the Summer.

Sweet Daisies

These Sweet Daisies come back every year with no coaxing.

Bee snacking at the White Rose

Oh, and let us tell you ’bout the birds and the bees …

The sun peeks through our big Pine tree’s branches

… and the flowers and the trees.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this stroll through our back yard.

Welcome Summer!

    Thanks for sharing. A very colorful yard with nice varieties. And catching a bee pollinating a flower. You know that would catch my attention knowing that I am a beekeeper, gardener and fruit grower (and pie baker). And good photography too Enjoy the beauty of summer.
