Last year, the rose bush was actually burnt by the sun (it was so hot last Summer). We thought that it had died, but it's better than ever this year. Just click on the pics to enlarge them.
The poppies belong to our next-door neighbors. They have tons of them that just pop up anywhere and everywhere. We've tried to grow them, but are pretty resigned to just admiring the theirs! :)
The lilies are just beautiful this year. We've been picking one or two of these plants up at Lowes every year (at the end of the season when they're on clearance). We've been sticking them in as "filler" plants, and have only seen a couple flowers. Well, this year seems to be the year! Take a look at the pink one, especially. :)
