The Great Outdoors

Now that the weather has warmed up, I've been on a mission to get our yard in shape. One of the tasks has been adding some new landscaping. I bought lots of begonias, geraniums, and roses for color. I have a black thumb, so I'm praying that I don't kill it all!

Bed of Begonias, these hold up in our hot Texas summers

Double-Knock Out roses, supposedly these are bullet-proof. The real question is: are they Knight proof? Only time will tell.

Climbing roses

We are blessed to have a yard full of azaleas. I only wish that their blooms stuck around for a bit longer!

Another duty has been cleaning up the outdoor furniture. I'll report back when this project is finished up!


  1. LOVE the pillows. And to be able to have those flowers . . . sigh. Dratted AZ.

  2. Oh I am so jealous that you already have blooms...and those pillows are so fab!

  3. love the hot pink geraniums! can't wait until we have our roses blooming here in the North East!
