So, we have some more flowers opening and showing their pretty little faces out front. Thought I'd share them...because they really are only around for such a short time.

Take a look at these beauties!

Believe it or not, those deep red lillies were just one of the types of lillies I was waiting for to pop out....we have more that are in bud form now.

How about these cuties? I love these colorful pink delicate petals. They seem to be happy, don't you think?

AND--I LOVE these little guys (girls?). I planted these this year. They are on their second round of blooming so far. They are like little purple bells. Oh so cute and pretty.

I love the contrast of the small yellow flowers sprinkled among the teeny green leaves. These are just beginning to open. We should have a sea of delicate yellow flowers pretty soon.

This ivy geranium is right next to our garage, hanging out with the hose.

And, just one more picture for today....
One of the planters next to my front door...full of petunias and geraniums. I have a mirror image on the other side of the stoop.

The summer floral show has begun at my house....and I am not exactly a green thumb.....so, I am excited when I see such pretty things happening in my yard without any help from me!
Really, the growth happening here is in spite of me. I don't know what I am doing at all. :0)
In fact, my guess is in about a month only half of these plants will be surviving.

You know when someone says "take a picture, it lasts longer"?
Uhhhhh....yeah. That's what I did.

Beautiful, Kim! I'm hoping my plants look like yours when I get them back from mom...:)
