BALLOON FLOWERS, BLACKEYED SUSANS AND DAY LILIES


The black eyed susans and the purple balloon flowers that I have planted in front of my house.  The day lilies here have all ready bloomed and are gone.


One day lily still in bloom and the black eyed susans that mother nature put or the birds put the seeds there.



More black eyed susans and purple balloon flowers  that I planted around what used to be the fish pond.  In the back ground are the hanging ferns I buy every year and a pot of petunias. 



Mother nature or the birds have scattered black eyed  susans seeds and they have come up all around my side yard.  Some I pulled up and transplanted and some I left.


More of mother natures or the birds work I have black eyed susans  in my little court yard.


Mother nature and the birds again at work in the court yard.   Click on pictures to get a closer look.

WELCOME THE MONTH OF JUNE

"It is the month of June, the month of leaves and roses, when pleasant sights salute the eyes and pleasant scents the noses."     ~Nathaniel Parker Willis~

"This is for June, and all the summers it brings for the chiming of the church bells... that sing in songs of matrimony o'er top hats and lace "fore June passes torch, to July scarlet face.

And the trees in full jacket, leaves forest green the last pink of magnolia, can still yet be seen there's a breeze in the air, that carries a scent sweet rose and honeysuckle in efflorescence. 

Nights still cast a chill, but June has its motives an evening gift for all those amorously devoted to feel the magic of love whilst  under the moon makes one thankful , there be the month of June.
