Last week before all this wet mess started I did snap a few photos of the yard right after I finished cutting and edging the yard and applying that fresh mulch not knowing what a mess it would be in just a few short days.
Knockout roses are thriving, but not a lot of blooms.
The newly planted hydrangeas are loving the rain, but us not so much.
These newly planted knockout roses are thriving and blooming.
The white Rose of Sharon is exploding with blooms.
The pink Rose of Sharon by the back deck has bent over from the rain. Mr. Savvy is going to try to tie it back to make it stand up again.
It's loaded with new buds waiting to bloom. What is that in the foreground, you say? Why that is the Savvy vineyard. Well, not quite a vineyard yet. Mr. Savvy planted three grapevines last year and they are doing quite well.
The petunias that were in this pot started dying from something so I replaced some of them with these tall yellow fluffy flowers. Don't remember what they are called. I will not plant them again though. Didn't realize they need daily watering.
I was going to paint this bench this year, but I never seem to get around to it on the few dry days that we have had. Maybe soon. I kind of like the worn patina, but it is starting to rust.
I hope you have a beautiful day where you are and a super week.
