The Dad got me both of these lilies on separate occasions.
One is a deep red color and the other is more orange.
This climbing rose is my nemesis.
It has blackspot and rust so bad right now, it's amazing it's actually blooming.
I'm really close to ripping the dang thing out.
This other climber was in the backyard when I bought the house.
It gets blackspot too, but not quite so bad.
It's more of a rambler than a climber I think.
It needs a home where it can go wild, 'cause I'm constantly whacking it back.
I planted a whole packet of sweet peas this year and ONE came up.
I have no idea what happened.
But the good news is, they reseeded themselves in the old sink where I had them last year.
There's just two plants, but they've gone crazy.
Remember the amazingly beautiful giant pink begonia I had hanging in the front yard tree last year?
Well, they didn't have any when I was at the nursery, so I went with a yellow one with smaller flowers instead.
We'll see if it can live up to its predecessor.
I guess that's it for now.
The neighbor gave me something old and rusty that I love, so I'll be sharing that in a post soon.
