I forgot to take a picture of my lilac bushes. They are still alive, but in sad shape since the groundhog that lives in my yard is eating the leaves. Every single leaf has bites out of it. If they can just make it through this year and get a little bigger I think they will make it. I have to get to Home Depot and get some chicken wire to put around them to protect them.
But other than that, here are some of the things out there. My hanging baskets aren't what they once were, but they are still there.
The impatients are still OK. That's good.
The only rose bush that is blooming. I really have to get out there and deadhead the roses. There's always so much to do!
My lilies are an orange/red.
They look orange until you compare them with my next-door neighbor's orange lilies.
It was such a nice night -- not too hot, not too cold -- that I sat down at the table and just enjoyed being outside.
How pretty this planter is. It was a good investment.
My little cat statue that I have by the back door. When my first cat, Fluffy, passed away I was so devastated. I bought this as a memorial to her. Even though it's been years, I still miss that cat. There will never be another one like her.
So much work to do in the yard. So much work to do around the house. But for last night I just enjoyed BEING and that's always a good thing.
