Easy Does It Rose

Floribunda; colors of mango orange, peach pink & ripe apricot

This is rose has a beautiful color & looks wonderful in vases.

Berries

We have blueberries & raspberries but we have seldom had an opportunity to eat them. Usually the birds help themselves to the berries before we can enjoy them. This year we have sampled a few & I snapped these photos.

Cone Flowers

My cone flowers are getting ready to bloom.

 

Bird Bath

We have a bird bath in our garden that has never look attractive til now. When we filled it with water the water was stagnant and attracted more mosquitoes than birds.  Last year I decided to fill it with soil & flowers. With the first rain it quickly became mud. I tried to drain it but the plants died. This year my husband drilled holes into the bottom for drainage, I filled it with fresh soil & plants. Now I am happy to look at the birdbath!
