Well there is thunder in the distance and it looks like rain.  We do need the rain, but that means staying inside when I would much rather be outside.  The plants, flowers and trees need watering so it'll save me from having to do it, so that's a blessing.  Here are a few more of my flowers.

The knockout roses are really getting tall.

The iceberg roses are pretty, but the leaves seem to have spots on them.

Love the verbena

The Mimosa tree is in full bloom.

Isn't it neat how two blooms on the same bush can be more than one color on the hydrangea bush.

The Geranium's are growing on the front porch, in the hanging baskets.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. You have a beautiful yard and it is HUGE. I love all your flowers. This is the first year my hydrangeas really flowered and yours are beautiful.

  2. Beautiful flowers, Sylvia. Love your Iceberg Roses :) You are blessed to have rain in the forecast. We have several fires here in the state of Colorado so Lord-willing we will get some rain soon.

    Thank you for sharing your prettiness with us - enjoy your day!

  3. Your flowers are beautiful! Your yard looks so inviting! Gorgeous! Have a wonderful week!

  4. Your flowers are so pretty Sylvia and the mimosa tree brings back fond memories. We had one at my childhood home. They smell so good.

  5. Oh Sylvia your garden is so beautiful ! You have so much space compared to my own city space garden. If my garden was that big I would have flowers and trees everywhere ! Your pretty flowers are making me long for Spring, we are shivering with cold at the moment and have the heating turned up on high. I hope that you are happy, healthy and well.
    Big hugs xo

  6. Hi Sylvia, Your hydrangeas and mimosa tree are fantastic! Hope you got your needed rain. God's rain is so much better than water from the tap...and cheaper too! My Endless Summer hydrangeas are a long way from blooming. In fact, at present I'm not seeing many buds at all. We had a super hot, super dry summer last year and I'm wondering if that's why. Hoping, though, it's just too early in my area and they will be appearing soon.
