Look, new little plum tree has little plums.. just plain makes me smile!
You probably don't remember those tiny little 8 or 9 inch roses I sent for, do you? Well, here they are doing beautifully and nearly to the top of the arbor. They are called AMERICA.
I can see one little rose up at the tippy top and many, many buds. One day soon...
Sweet dear husband is out there mowing and mowing...
The flagstone walkway will soon be set into the grass and will run from the back gate clear around the front of the house to the driveway. (Can hardly WAIT!)
...and mowing..AND smiling!!
I just wanted you to see how close they are getting to the top of the arbor!!
See? Neat, huh?!
(*sigh* that clover or whatever it is has to go..
Our beautiful Redwood trees just keep getting taller and taller and one day they will be soooo big a car can drive right through them :):):)
Yep...from the gate...right along the wall flower bed , past the gas meter..
Bless his heart! Rain today, the news said. WHERE??
LOOK! and it kept right on going up to 99 degrees! Time for a break I think!!
So...I think THIS was in order, don't you? A bit of warmed banana nut bread and ice cold lemonade!
Gotta keep that man smilin'....
Can you just see the stone pathway from just in front of the flower bed to the corner of the house and around and down to the arbor of ROSES!!! :):) I can.
Thanks to Joyce and a couple of other sweet bloggy friends..I've had some wonderful suggestions for vines to plant on the trellis's that will be on the side of the house. THREE white ones with..you'll see!
All our effort is paying off, I think. Lots more to do though. LOTS! Maintaining a home yourself isn't for wimps..that's for sure! The California heat is on it's way and that is always hard on the plants and flowers.
p.s. Those rains did come for a bit...but on Thursday morning. :)
