Summer 2007 blooms

Gardening efforts have been paying off well so far this year in spite of a deplorable lack of rainfall. These are just some of the blooms we get to enjoy on a regular basis. Every day brings something new and we are all enjoying our little walks around the yard to see what is new for that day. Enjoy!
PS The plants I called "Mystery" are because all of the labels from the daylillies I bought at Lowe's last year were wrong. These blooms are just as pretty but I don't know their names.

About Me

My parents both passed away prior to the birth of my son. These stories are an attempt to document memories I have of them in the hope that my son will learn a bit about their personalities through reading about their crazy antics.
