SHADES of RED

Desert Rose

The Desert Rose had a record setting year for flowers. At one time nine were counted occupying the plant at the same time!


Wagon Load

The rose lives in this old wagon on the north porch.


Petunia

Not for sure what the little cluster of red and white flowers are; but the five pointed star shaped flower is a nice petunia, in a nice shade of red.


Geranium

These pics were all made in July of this year. Miss Charlotte declares this has been one of the best growing years in a long time. Here it is August and we still have rich green grass and flowers all around. She grows and tends them, mows the grass, and I get the hardest job. Picking out my favorite of the many varieties while making sure my chair stays in the shade!

  1. That's quite the back yard you and Charlotte have there! Beautiful flowers but that Desert Rose is definitely the "belle of the ball".
