Roses are very much in bloom at my Dad's. He has a green thumb extraordinaire!
Lots of them!
And even though it is drought conditions here, my Dad carries his water out to them every day.
We have always enjoyed the gladiolas in his vegetable garden!
The two little rains they have had while I've been here sure rescued several plants.
Isn't this a great inspiration for some yarn!?
He still grows his huge Dahlias, too. I managed to catch a visitor on this one!
But see how the drought has drooped the petals?
The Heliopsis is looking pretty good! Dad says no matter how many times he separates and reduces or pulls up an area-they come back strong the next year!
Yes, he has green thumbs!
The drumsticks and the mums keep each other company!
Isn't this just amazing? What a beautiful way to be greeted coming and going!
A little bit of knitting is going on between things....I tried to teach this one to my Mom.
She didn't enjoy it one bit and decided that at her age, she doesn't have to waste time on new if she doesn't want to! lol I always offer new things and sometimes I hit a homerun and sometimes, like this one, it's a strike out!
