|Pink roses on the side of the house. Roses are very low maintenance which I like.|
It’s summer!!! We are having a less hot and humid summer here in Illinois this year, which I am enjoying. There has been a lot of rain, but it keeps me from watering our plants and flowers as often so I can’t complain. My husband and I have become amateur vegetable gardeners, and have taken a keener interest in flowers and lawn maintenance. Of course this equals a lot of physical labor, but it’s GREAT exercise- my biceps are poppin’! Lol. I really do love working in the yard and look forward to years of additions and modifications. Below are a few pics of some of our flowers. These pictures are a few weeks old so some the flowers have blossomed further and others concluded their blooming season. I will post another blog later in the summer when other flowers/trees blossom. My next post will focus on our house plants and my last post of this series will focus on our vegetable garden. We have lots of vegetables and herbs growing this year. I’m most excited about our small pumpkin patch!. But, for now…

|Imagine this red rose bush completely covered in roses because it is now! It’s beautiful. The roses transitioned from bright red to a deep mahogany color.|
Well, this concludes the flower edition of my Home & Garden series. Stay tuned for part 2 (the house plant edition), and part 3 (the vegetable and herb edition)!
