With all the dirtiness inside and excessive shrubbery outside, it's all that much more pleasant when something beautiful shows up. I'd like to do a small post of all those things:
|The star lily surprise in the front yard.|
|Pink/purple Rose of Sharon|
|White Rose of Sharon|
Okay, so the last one wasn't too much of a surprise as I planted it. The others were unexpected though. The lily was unfortunately knocked over by a strong wind a few days after that picture was taken. Oh well. The Rose of Sharon's are doing well, though. We seem to have a lot of them, so we've been enjoying the blooms for about a week and a half so far. I'm sure we have several weeks worth of buds on there still.
As we rip out even more trees & bushes (from the back yard this time,) it is nice to see at least something pretty to encourage us along.
Pictures of the back yard to come!
