The Bonica shrub rose continues to be a beauty, but one that takes very little maintenance.
I thought the clematis flowers look pretty cool as they go to... seed? I love the texture of the swirls
Country-esque flower baskets hang by the garage. You may have noticed before... but I love calibrochia or "million bells". And you can never go wrong with bacopa (or bicopa).
My sunflowers planted from seed have grown literally a foot in the last few days. I can't wait to see their sunny faces in front of the pumphouse.
These beauties... impatiens I started this winter from seed. I have one small flower bed that I like to put in pink impatiens.... my other hundreds I started are all white. These I couldn't resist, I've never seen any quite like this variety.
And Wave petunias on the front porch pillars... in shades of purple. The sun looks especially pretty as it glows through the petals.
And well, the other pillar? Well you can see I live in the country. That yellow "wheel" in the distance. It's reeling in a hose... a very large hose to water the potatoes planted on our acreage. It's been running for 38 hours now.
Yeah, if you do the math... that means that it ran all night last night... it kind of looked pretty at sunrise this morning at about 5:15 am. But a tractor runs this baby... after 4 straight nights of fireworks in the "neighborhood" to celebrate the 4th, well last night we got to listen to a diesel tractor run ALL. NIGHT. LONG! Right beside the house!
But I shouldn't complain since that's what country living brings. It also means that this little picture taken of a dirt field on June 4th....
Looks like this on July 6th. I believe those spuds were knee high by the 4th of July... just like the corn.
Looking forward to a quieter night... I hope!
