These are some of the things I will miss around my yard while I'm gone.
The Crepe Myrtle are just beginning to bloom. The Tiger Swallowtails are enjoying the flowers.The Clematis have grown up to the top of the arbor.My beautiful lilies are about done so I'm glad I got to see them every day.Soon the coneflowers will make me smile!My porch that is open and breezy.Oh this little doggie and her long hair!Roses.Blackberry Lilies...SO SWEET!The Hydrangea will be here..just a different color when I return.This mornings moon.OH I guess I wont miss that long hair!!
We decided to give Daisy Lu a haircut on our own! I think my hubby did a wonderful job!Daisy really thinks she is a Pointer, we won't tell her otherwise!Such beautiful apples!And my favorite place to sit!You all have a great 4th of July celebration!!
God Bless America!

Oh My! Wonderful series of photos...so many beautiful flowers.

I like your clematis arbor. We have a pile of twigs and have been looking for a project. You've just given me some inspiration!

Good job on Daisy Lu's haircut, she is quite stylin'. Her pointer pose is precious!

Happy 4th to you and yours!

My favorite picture of all? The 'still life' (your gifted compositions always dazzle me)! I enjoyed the doggie and the flowers...one question...do I see no roses? Or is that a trick ;-)
Have a wonderful 4th as well!

Eve said...

Thanks all! My trip is going splendidly! Thank you Barb! And the little pink roses are behind the blackberry lilies. They are actually quite small.

Mary said...

All that beauty, I'm surprised you can stand to leave it! Daisy Lu looks cute with and without hair :-) I've never heard of that Blackberry Lily...very pretty. We'll miss you!

Roy said...

I can see why you would miss them Evie, especially the little doggie with the long/short hair.

Glad you and Morgan are having a great time Eve!! Daisy Lu looks very cute :) The arbor looks cool! Love your table on the porch!! Have fun!!!

Such a pretty spot you have and your pointer dog has excellent form, if not somewhat uncharacteristic.
