It's that time, again. . . . Gardening pool side! Our family spends a great deal of our summer days in the back yard swimming, grilling and entertaining. My husband built our deck and arbor.For me, summertime means pulling weeds, amending soil and planting plenty of flowers. This year, we pulled out our overgrown morning glory. It's returning on our fence at a pace faster than we can remove it. Prolific indeed! Our kind neighbors have a beautiful orange tree that peeks over our fence. Pink and white petunias and roses are the flowers of choice this summer. They provide instant color and thrive in our hot southern California sun.These roses will end up in vases! My flower boxes are growing ivy geraniums. The climbing roses love this bunny!I tease my daughter that by the time she's ready for marriage, the climbing roses will finally cover the arbor where she will say her vows!
Thanks for stopping by. Happy gardening to all!
