How was your weekend? I hope it was a good one. I hope that you had a nice Mother's Day with your family too. Mine was good. My oldest son brought me flowers and my husband cooked out a great meal on the grill. He fixed one of my favorite meals for me.
After such a relaxing weekend, it was difficult to re-adjust to Monday morning coming so early. I nipped that in the bud though with a good work-out and then ran some errands.
I thought I would share some pics of our yard since we're finally getting some pretty flowers blooming around us. The weather has been so nice lately, but today is a bit too hot for me. It is in the mid 80's today! I prefer the 70's.
Our house sits up on a hill with lots of trees around it. So, I'm thankful for the shade it provides us during the hot months.
We are waiting on our "pinestraw guy" to bring us some pinestraw to put out around our bushes. So, just ignore how bad that looks for now.
One of my favorite things in our yard is this hydrangea bush. It came from the photographers that took pictures of our house for Romantic Country magazine a few years ago. It has grown dramatically and I'm looking forward to seeing the blooms on it this year!
I have a lot of irises in our back yard. I don't know which kind they are, but they never fail to appear in the Spring.
I love knock-out roses since they're so hardy. They will bloom throughout the summer too.
We have some old fashioned climbing roses on our mailbox too.
The funny thing about these roses are that I thought they were dead one year. So, I planted honeysuckle in it's place. But, to my surprise, the roses weren't dead! So, now I have a bit of a tangled mess of climbing roses mixed with honeysuckle vine. At least they co-mingle well together and smell wonderful when they're in bloom.
I hope you enjoyed my little flower tour today. I finally put out fresh bird seed in my bird feeders so the squirrels can enjoy them too! Ha!
Have a great Monday!
