Yard Scenes

Here are a couple of shots from around our yard today.
Our roses are in their second bloom cycle this summer. I've learned that as long as I dead head them after their first blooms, a while later I'll get another crop of gorgeous blossoms and they seem to last through the summer

Here are some blossoms from the climbing roses plant a friend gave me for my birthday last year
 


Here is a blossom from the bush some friends gave us for a housewarming present when we moved in - beautiful!
 


Here is our mighty huntress
This week she caught another chipmunk (she already brought another one in the house this summer). Last week she caught a lizard...she gets so offended when I start to panic and shout when she brings in her live friends...she just can't understand why we get so upset. :)

Hmmmm.. I know I gave you a climbing rose a while back because I have one that does really well in this climate. Is that the one? It's gorgeous! If so, it will grow to be gigantic, at least mine is. And, did I not tell you then that you should
"deadhead" your roses and all flowers
if you want continuous bloom? Sometimes it takes a lot of time but it's worth it. That would be a good job for the taller girl, too!
