in the old days

These pictures are from last year.
A temporary stand that returned year after year to sell plants.
It wasn’t there at all this year, for obvious reasons.
I understand, of course, but I miss those colorful shopping excursions.

red roses

I had to get some pictures of my roses
before it gets cold and rainy again.
This is the most blooms ever for these two plants,
and I might have to post a few more photos.
They are never as pretty as they are in May.

a flower for your friday

~ a flower for your friday ~

I was surprised to find this yellow wood poppy in my yard.
I didn’t plant it, and I never had it before.
I love when flowers do that!
The open flowers and even the buds are substantial enough
to give the area an eye-catching pop of color.
