Finally we’re getting some good color. The flowers seem about a month behind compared to last year. That’s ok, I’ll take the color now.
Bloom Day – July 2016
Every year at this time I have mixed thoughts about our flowerbeds. I love all the blooms. The flowers are beautiful. But, as a whole, the beds are very unkept and overgrown. It is impossible for me to keep up with the weeds and deadheading. Too many flowerbeds, too little time. I’m working on coming up with a solution to this dilemma. Unfortunately, the solution

We’re already at the point where the majority of blooms are past their prime, which
Bloom Day – June 2015
