The summer weather lately has been hot, humid and oppressive. We recently had a severe thunderstorm with torrential rain that cooled it off a little. Before this I snapped some of our flowers.
Our 17 Rose of Sharon bushes are beginning to flower. I captured some of the early flowers and will take more photos when the rest of them flower. Once they all begin it will be breathtaking!
Our hydrangea is blooming beautifully after many years of no flowers because they were cut down in error by our landscaper. We had another plant but it was cut back again this year in another error! Yikes!
It was that time of the year when our pond is due for a clearing. It has overgrown so high and full. The birds love it but it has to be done.
Here are some photos of before and after the clearing began. There are a lot of unhappy critters like snakes, birds frogs, and a groundhog who live there. This is a retention pond but there never is much water in it with all the vegetation that grows there, reason why they keep clearing it out.
It will grow back before the fall again though. But it does look neater. It’s nice to get rid of the Bittersweet vines that strangle the bushes, trees all around New Hampshire. It is a vine that when brought here became invasive.
I hope you enjoyed my photos. I promise to share more photos of our flowers soon.

Flowers are amazing!
Gorgeous flowers! We need some of that rain desperately!
Thank you. We did too. But I think we are still monitoring watering in New Hampshire.
