various flowers and plants

Volunteer petunias that came back this year .  I pulled them up from the beds and planted in this pot on the garden gate.  Highly fragrant.

Large leaf begonia ( I am guessing it is a begonia)  growing along the side of my house

Roses seem a little puny this year.

A metal butterfly Steve purchased.

Been told this is purple basil.   It reseeds itself every year and grows where ever the wind takes the seed.    I need to take it to a nursery and see if some one knows the name of this one.

Purple pets in  a pot with a moon flower vine.

shrubs need a haircut.

Happy Saturday

simple arrangement

Not sure if this is a weed.   If it is - it is pretty and softens

Another I am not sure of

paired with this pretty red rose

Makes for a pleasing little arrangement

before the rain

It has been raining off and on since last Friday.  Saturday was nice.  Monday through today so far has been rain .

some calm before the storm

Not sure where I want to plant the knockout roses quite yet ,  so in the pot they go

this lavender plant is so huge

this was about a week and a half ago outside den window

Flowers above I picked from my yard

She wants to pull it off for sure

Instead we painted rocks,  look forward to painting more for the flower bed.
