Roses of many colours

John took photos of the roses today, despite the heat they are doing really well. One of the pink rose bushes has 43 blooms.

I also have white roses, yellow roses a red rose and another pale pink rose. The miniature roses have stopped flowering for now and the Black Beauty roses are just starting to bud.

The red, as John calls them or dark pink as I call them are almost ready to open.

Do my photos move themselves after I publish the post? The photos in the previous post were all set out side by side and it drives me crazy!!!

Miscellaneous Stuff

The gorgeous flowers John gave me for our wedding anniversary, the roses in our garden and some stitchy stuff. Once again in random order as I have yet to work out how the pictures show up one way in my draft and another in the published post LOL. Oh and a picture of Shane ready for casual day/dress ups at school.

Flowers and vegetables, Yay!

All the hard work is paying off. Here somewhere (since my photos move after I preview and post) you should see the growth of the vegetable garden, the yellow roses, irises and a pinky/peachy rose ready to bloom and my potted vegetables waiting to grow big enough for the garden.

What was I thinking?

When I decided to renovate the back yard LOL. Here is what it looks like after my first effort.
The plan is to dig up all of the grass, pave from the house to the mail box, along the border of the flower garden. Replace the clothesline with a retractable one. Replace the grass with nice lawn and pave alongside the driveway to even things out and reduce the amount of lawn to water and mow.

Flowers in my garden

The first time the irises have bloomed in years. I forgot they were yellow, my favourite colour.

From the old black car - note the oil stained driveway, to the newer green car. Yay!

Stitching and the garden

Tigger towel for John.

The vegetable garden is growing and now has solar lights LOL.
The flower garden still needs weeding, but the miniature roses are gorgeous.
