Flower power!

Of course I had to start with a Katie pic! Wednesday and Thursday it was so hot, humid and windy it wasn't funny!
The wind got so bad there were lots of limbs down and we had an advisory out. So this morning 62 degrees was a bit of a shock but a lovely day to sit on the porch and enjoy! It got into the 70's and only a slight breeze.
Look at what we found out back! Sorry it isn't blooming today but it is a daylilly in the back yard. I think I will try to move it to a better spot this fall.
Here is the little patch by the side porch off our bedroom. The morning glories are racing to see who reaches the top of the bannister first! I need to plant some more to replace the ones that didn't germinate. I lost all the ground cover I planted along the front. We had so much rain it destroyed them! I want to put a climbing rose bush on the end there. Wouldn't that be lovely? And it would block some of the evening sun.
And here is my patriotic patch out front! Just a little patch!
So hope you enjoyed a little stroll around the yard!

I love the morning glory and climbing rose idea. Sort of old-fashioned and romantic!

Thanks for the nice stroll around your yard. I really love those bright blue flowers in your patriotic patch.

It isn't too hot here yet. Last year it was horrible in June. I like this better!
