Flag Day

Boyd working on his watering system for our flower barrels.
This is the clematis Janice and Jason game me for Mother's Day two years ago. It has huge blossoms.
In the middle of this picture with a rock beside it is the pumpkin I planted for Brandon so that he'll have a pumpkin plant when he comes. It's in the middle of my flower garden.
Here I am standing beside the side gate. Click on the picture to enlarge it so you can see how pretty the flowers are and the roses are starting to bloom.

We have two flags up and I'm wearing my USA flag shirt! I've spent most of the morning moving a couple of plants and doing a little bit of housework, nothing terribly patriotic, but I guess that's what our flag represents; a place where people can own property and putter in their houses and gardens without fear or asking permission. Here are a couple of pictures of us. Boyd is putting in a watering system for our barrels and I've been doing a lot of weeding this week.

I hope you have better luck with pumpkins than I do. We always have squash bugs kill the plant before any pumpkins have a chance to start growing.
