The dog wanted a walk.. or mainly to see what Dayle was up to.. so I stuck my camera in my pocket and off we went for our walk. Hubby was at the top of another ladder scrubbing the slide-outs on the trailer. We're preparing for departure in a week for our annual camping trip/family reunion. Our President Lincoln rose is in bloom! See the dirt patches? Those are courtesy of our large community of moles. :-)Look at the velvety color on these petals. And it smells sooooo good!
Another rose on the bush with 3 buds behind it.
The pink rose with yellow at the base of the petals - I don't know the name of this one.
A few years ago we got a bag of assorted lily bulbs and this Tiger Lily is a product of those. Love it!
Beyonce the chicken.
The girls are getting along way better now that they've spent a few weeks together and they have a nice big yard to enjoy. Shelby is the brighter one.
Buffy, Lacey, Shelby and Beyonce -- the littlest and youngest, Hershey, is at the bottom of the pecking order.
Our apple tree is loaded this year!
The garden around the creek and waterfalls is ... shall I say "lush".. instead of overgrown? :-) I planted a hardy fuchsia next to my garden statue and it's finally, after 6 years or so, filled out nicely!
Can you just hear the sound of the water falling?
Purple hydrangea - these are great hardy shrubs!
Dayle has wintered over these pretty geraniums for years now, on a shelf near the glass door of the stairway to our basement. There are pots of lavender and peppermint behind them.
Our potted red banana wintered over in my office, but when we first put it outside it got battered badly by cold blasts of East wind... but it's doing fine now! Behind it is a very lush variety of bamboo, and behind that.. our woods.
This tiny little rose bloomed from a tiny little pot, I need to get these planted -- I got 4 of them from this wonderful garden - "Heritage Roses".
When I took the dog back in the house I noticed the sun over the flower fields across the road so went out to get a photo. What a nice thing to have across the street, eh? The moles have been very busy in our front yard!
A zoom in to show you the flowers grown by several Laotian families, they sell pretty bouquets at the Portland area farmers markets. These are dahlias.
This is our poor unused front porch. We used to sit on the swing a lot, before we had the new deck installed and then the "water feature" put in. Yes, I need to sweep and put some rattan chairs and a table out here to make it more inviting.. I'll get to that one of these days. :-)
Night before last I got this shot of the full moon. :-)I have some fun things to share with you, but that's for another post. I have some housekeeping to do today! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
