I Love Summer

I love summer, really I do, even though the 100 degree temps forecast for next week are not my favorite.  But I do love the warm weather.  One reason is because my yard comes alive with fast growing plants and flowers.  I walk out into my outdoor room and it's a little more beautiful every day.









We've had an exceptionally wet spring and everything is very green!  Even the front yard looks awesome and lush.


The only thing that hasn't really taken off is my Knockout Roses, but they are new.  I think they need some food.  (add to my "to do" list)

Also, the pool is getting warmer - it's still cool, especially after the rain, but on a sunny day or after some yard work it feels great.  And if the evening is cool I just heat up the spa and sit in the warm bubbly water!

There it is, my own little piece of summer paradise, right out the kitchen window.


Much Love & Laughter,


Laura

Oh, gosh, I would never leave this backyard! I would have a staycation
everyday! LOL!! Your plants look great! The mild winter and recent rains have helped us all out! My yard is at it's peak, right now. Those 100 degree temps forecasted for next week will really start to stress my pots!
