Stop and Smell the Roses...

Well, the old-fashioned roses, but they don't have much for smell.

With our home improvement projects this year, I added a lot of perennials to a couple of flowerbeds once the construction was over.  I've really been able to work a lot outside this year since all the kids are finally old enough to entertain themselves in the yard without me needing to keep a constant eye on them for fear of someone running out in the street.

So, these are the best pics I can take until I get a macro lens, but really, I just like having pictures of the flowers that greet me when I go outside!  Enjoy!

As we head into fall, will you be doing any planting for next year?

I can't wait for fall planting. I've been looking at gardening mags and books dreaming about my mixed borders and backyard oasis. I've been tearing out vines from our backyard like mad. They grow like crazy here. If only the critters in the woods behind the house (deer?) would eat them instead of the one plant I planted this summer.
