I used to think that everything died off towards the end of the Summer, and it still may, but I am rather impressed by what I am seeing right now.
First of all, I can’t even believe the end of summer is here. I really need to find some way to make my life pass more slowly. When I was a kid, summer used to take years to pass by. This year, I remember sitting here writing a post about when the trees bloom in the Northeast. That’s pretty weird, considering it feels like that just happened a few weeks ago. Perhaps I need a nice lazy farm-like piece of property to slow things down. I will have to put that on my list.
So I wanted to show you the gift that keeps on giving. I picked up a bunch of rose bushes this year for $1 a piece. Well, last year I did the same thing, the only thing is, I only bought two bushes. Well, they just keep impressing me. The reason they impress me so much is because once the rose bush blooms, it keeps blooming all season long. It seems like every time it rains or I water it, new growth spurts up. Here, take a look…
This is going on my list of favorite flowers. Also, back in the Spring, I butchered the butterfly bush pretty good. It was just sitting there like a bunch of sticks coming out of the ground. Laura didn’t like that because she wants the thing to grow ten feet tall. I would have to say it came back rather nicely this season.
We have two other flowers that we can’t quite identify. I think one of them might be a Black Eyed Susan of some sort, if there are different sorts, that is. The other one, I have no idea. All I know is that it is starting to bloom in early September. Suggestions are welcome.
