Back Yard

Still battleing the bug here.  Lots of pollen = lots of hacking, especially at night.  I started on the guest bedroom and then gave up, just didn't feel like messing with it.  I did walk out into the back yard a few minutes ago and saw a few, rather two buds.

The above is the first rose to bloom and another by it about ready.  This is a pink knockout rose and if you haven't tried the knockout, give them a try.  They have profuse blooming all summer and are very disease resistent.

This is the first red knockout that opened yesterday.

These are Ray's blackberry bushes.  He is hoping to get a cobbler out of these.  They have blooms now so, he may have a cobbler, if not enough, maybe a turnover!!

This is the red knockout rose.

This is the pick knockout rose.  I recently found a yellow and Ray planted it last weekend for me.  I think it will be awhile before there are any blooms. 

This is our patio.  I haven't got around to getting this done.  I have planted a couple of patio  tomato plants.  I have had really good luck with them the last couple of years.  As you can see,our grass is just beginning to turn green.  There are still lots of dead spots.

This is a columbine that I got last week at Lowes,  I love the color.  I'll show these  things again when they really begin to bloom and the pollen settles down so, I can get out  there comfortably.
The rest of the green plants are herbs, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.

Have a great day!

That rose is amazing! I can hardly wait for mine to start blooming. It seems like it has been a very long winter, but where we live it seems to go from winter to HOT summer. But I am ready for it.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, come back soon.
