My roses are finally blooming and because of all the rain we have had, they look healthy and quite pretty.

The top rose is my favorite and is a climbing rose.

This second rose starts out a creamy white and then it blushes as it matures.

My last rose is so unique in that the outside of the petal is cream colored and the inside of the petal is a bright red.♥♥♥♥


Today we will work in our garden.

Tomatoes need staking, and some weeding.

But first I just want to say I’m so pleased with all my flowers that keep popping up and giving us some beautiful visual rewards.

My Mexican Primrose makes for good picture taking, although very invasive.

The Lantana is growing strong and my butterfly bush will soon show us some color.

I’m amazed that my Hydrangea survived a whole year and is ready to show off it’s blooms.

Even the tender paddles of nopales are ready to be used in Mexican cooking, well, not by me, but my sister-in-law loves to come over and get some  to use in her cooking.

Enough talk, we have to get out there before the heat.♥♥♥♥


My rose beauties ♥♥♥♥


Hubby and I have been working our little bottoms off in the garden.

Weeding by hand and then the bigger patches were done with the weed eater by hubby.

We have cleaned up old leaves, cleaned up the pecans that the squirrels have left behind and made a new walkway.

Yes, it is a lot of hard work, but we’ll continue to do it until we can’t bend over any more.

Being out in the garden when everything is blooming is our reward.

New plants were added and some have come up by themselves. Daisies have made their appearance once again.

I added some geraniums, which are some of my favorites.  I have one niece that refers to them as old lady plants, but I’ve always  loved them, even as a young girl.  Choice of colors is amazing.
