My Yard

Good Morning All,
I have been working in the yard, alot and things are beginning to bloom everywhere! I have alittle more mulching to do and then I can just do weed control for the rest of the summer. The climbers are so pretty...




Backyard...





I have geraniums in the old planter I bought a couple of months ago...





I love yellow roses...




More climbers. Do you see my tennis froggie???





More roses...



And while I a busy in the yard laboring away, here is what Sir Theodore is doing... :)


Hope you all have a great week ahead...

Robin,
Your backyard is very charming. I love the brick patio. Your roses are beautiful. You have done a very nice job. I was in the yard yesterday and worked putting out a small garden and I made an herb border, today I am sore.LOL Have a great week.

Your yard looks gorgeous! I can't believe that you have roses already - mine are still just in bud.

Yellow roses are my favorite too. I have a beautiful one in my front yard and had a large print made from a photo I had taken. I now sits in a antiqued silver type frame against my butter yellow wall.
Our weather has not cooperated and although everything is growing like mad the rain and cold are keeping us from the yard. The weeds never take a break though do they,

Your yard is looking beautiful Robin! If I remember, aren't there roses all along your picket fence? I can't wait to see that!

My goodness your yard is just gorgeous Robyn!
What is the secret to growing roses? We planted a climber last summer and it's as dead as a doornail this spring. I am so frustrated!
Anyhoo, everything looks amazing!
Hugs,
Cindy

Your Cottage is precious! And Sir Theodore looks like as much help as my little Elle! At least they aren't digging in the beds too. :) I think my favorite thing of all is the bright RED shutters in that flowerbed! ADORABLE!

Those climbing red roses are eye dazzlers!

A SPLASH OF RED

A splash of red or a dash of blue—
Which is the color that’s just for you?

A hint of blue or a tint of red—
Which of these colors goes to your head?

Of all the colors under the sun,
Red is simply my favorite one!
