You're killin' me with these photos, Maggie.

Your flowers are gorgeous.

Are these roses? My god, they're beautiful.

Your yard must be colorful and fragrant and full of busy buzzing bees and fluttering butterflies.

Do you see hummingbirds in you yard?

This is an Impressionistic climbing rose. It is on one side of my trellis, and wisteria is on the other side. The wisteria is also growing all over a bench-seat trellis next to this trellis. I hope to have it covering almost everything on that side of the small memory garden I planted, and keep planting things in, for my father.

Many bees and butterflies in the summer. I love it!

And, once, a hummingbird chose to hover next to my ear. I was standing very still. I had been watering and heard the humming, so I stopped moving, and it hovered there for what seemed quite a long time, next to me, thinking perhaps I was a flower (I had on a bright pink tank top and am sure I had sprayed myself that morning with some Bath & Body Works spray!).

What a lovely experience!
