It is amazing what a week away will do in your garden. We came back to a complete jungle of a yard! We also got our first poppy of the summer, too bad we missed its peak of prettiness.
So, I had been anxiously awaiting my first rose explosion of the summer, but we sadly missed it while we were away. They're still gorgeous, but it's not the same as that first blast of rose hitting your nose as you walk out the back door.
We also missed out on the strawberries. I'll have to ask my sister in law if she had them, or if the birds got to them. On a good note, LOOK at Dave's very first red pepper!
And Lyndsey and Britt, my AWESOME hanging basket is still flourishing from Mother's Day! So pretty!
