Daily Walkabout

One of the things I enjoy the most after coming home from a long work day is doing my daily walkabout in the backyard to see what's blooming, what's about to bloom, and what needs a little attention.

Today was an exceptional day for the walkabout.  The passionflower was blooming, my new red proud land rose bush had a gorgeous bloom, the pink knockout rose was blooming, and the poppies greeted me with their spectacular vibrance.


  1. Oh wow! I'm so jealous. I can't believe your Passionflowers are so far along! Love those! Enjoy!

    1. They just popped open, Beth. I need to appreciate them while I can because the gulf frittalry caterpillars will be chomping on them soon.


I would love for you to leave me a comment...Rebecca
