It’s a well know fact Mike likes to putter in the yard and I don’t. I find it too much like work – I’d rather make something than sweat in the beating sun digging in dirt. Still I love beautiful flowers, yards, and gardens. Honestly if it weren’t for Mike I’d live in a condo an enjoy the grounds tended by others. Since he likes it I live in a house with a yard tended by Mike. Here’s some photos that were on my camera from our yard.
As you can see the apple tree has recovered from our winter trimming. It’ll need more reshaping this winter.
When our lilacs bloomed they were beautiful.
The roses are lovely too.
The red tipped white rose is my favorite I think.
The red is so bright that it almost vibrates!
I don’t know what these are called but I like them. They are hardy and bloom in the heat and cooler summers.
Mike put his University of Tennessee stepping stone in the garden by the front door. Great place to display our alma mater.
