This year (2020) has been a difficult year for everyone all over the world. Of course it has been harder for those who do not have a home or daily meals. I pray for anyone who is having a horrendous time during the Pandemic and all the violence we are experiencing.
I want to take a minute out of this post to say a pray for all who are in need and for the family of George Floyd. God bless them all.
Even though I haven’t been out and about for a few months I have been walking around our yard and snapping photos of all the trees and flowers that are budding and blooming. It gives my soul a lift to see the life around us goes on in spite of everything that has transpired in the news.
Here are some photos of what is growing around our yard.
My son and daughter-in-law gave me this plant above and the one below for Mother’s Day. Hibiscus – 6 years ago and Pasaflora this year.
My husband has been busy planting his garden on the deck – hanging tomatoes, zucchini, and cucumbers. I can’t wait to start picking the first crop.
Our Rose of Sharon bushes are greening up but no flowers yet until July and August. I will definitely share photos when they are gloriously covered in their summer attire of flowers.
Just underneath the tomato plant and above photo is our pond. It is greening up and the bull frogs are croaking away big time. A month or two ago we listened to the peepers out in the pond every night. If you left your window open they would keep you up all night. I got used to them and didn’t even hear them after awhile. They become music to sleep by.
I hope you enjoyed seeing all the plants and flowers gracing our yard. They make a house a home in many ways. Stay tuned for more updates on the veggies and photos of the first crop! So excited!!
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

Lovely flowers! I wondered how I would grow cucumbers in a planter on the deck. Thanks for the visual. Glad you are well!
Thank you, Michele. This is the first time we have done anything besides tomatoes. I’ll let you know how they turn out. I can’t wait to taste them! hugs xx
