I have lots of flowers in my yard. Some years I spend allot of time working on the beds and other years not so much.
Here are a few I have:
Bigger picture of this climbing rose. I planted it 15 yrs ago with one bush on each side of the arch but as you can see the one on the left thrived and the one on the right... fizzled out! LOL
Here are a few more as you walk through my yard:
This rose is more of an orange color:
This is my "wildrose" my husband dug up over 10 yrs ago and planted in my yard.
Here are some of my iris's. This peach one or salmon colored is my favorite. Funny story behind this color is that when we moved here in 1994 these were here. The old widow lady that we moved out of here wanted a start of them at her new house. I gave her some and then she kept showing up and digging up more. There would be holes where she dug up more each day LOL she was stealing my flowers! I was only left with a couple of them... but over the years they have multiplied, thank goodness.
I have tons of these lilies...bet you do too!
This is a "wild daisy" I did not plant... just showed up ... See the fly on the flower!
This is my Clematis I planted many years ago... I love these!
These "Hollyhocks" are from seeds from my Mom over 10 yrs ago... they come up everywhere each year and I have to move them so we don't mow them down!
PS did you see the "cobweb" on that last hollyhock picture?
I have lots more pictures I will share with you soon of more flowers!
Hope you enjoyed these!..
On a side note how is JULY going for you guys! Are you making the BEST of IT??
