The purple clematis bloomed again this week.
In the background is a begonia.
The aloe in the wreath is thriving.
A reader asked me to identify the corbels on our house. One is to the left of the "C".
We painted them, this spring, a pale green with oops paint.
We finally trimmed most of our shrubbery.
It is a colossal job.
We need minions to help with this yard.
Everyone around us has some.
We also need exercise therefore no minions :}
The crepe myrtles are not blooming as much this summer.
Likely due to the frequent rain.
I do not know what this small yellow blooming tree is.
I bought it at a neighbor's plant sale. It is about five feet tall.
The ginger lily is about to bloom for the first time.
I am beyond excited about this.
Many folks have told me how sweetly scented it is.
A Black Swallowtail Butterfly on the Butterfly Bush.
If you want butterflies plant one or two of these and some lantana.
Despite much rain we are trying to stay ahead of the grass and weeds
(I mowed for an hour this morning).
I am not saying we are successful but we are trying.
It is a labor of love for our home that we adore.
