A Southern Rose

Yesterday I walked around in my yard and took a few pictures of my flowers that have started to bloom. I love this time of year when everything is fresh and new. This rosebud is a symbol of how I feel today...fresh and new. I love that God gives us different seasons.

These are growing in my backyard in a big pot with a trellis. They were here when I moved here. I think they are called clematis. I'm not sure. I think that they are beautiful.
They seem to love the shade. My backyard is very shady and it is so pretty back there. I want to plant more flowers soon.




This is one of my roses that is climbing up my fence. It is a Jacob's coat. I love the colors and they smell wonderful.
I've had it since last year and it makes a lot of blooms.




I love the yellow and red together.





This is one of my pink roses. I forget what it was called when I bought it. I just had to have it since it was pink. I bought 4 of them. It makes big blooms. This one had been there for a few days.






I love pink! I love roses! What could be better?







This is my pretty 'spring' wreath on my front door. I love the roses on here.
I'm going back to work today after being off since Tuesday. I am feeling a lot better but I still get tired easily. I'm just gonna take it slow. I know that there is going to be a lot of work waiting for me when I get to work.
Thanks to everyone that left me sweet comments about me and my mom. When she comes back I will have to show her and I know it will make her happy.

It is pretty yard with so much potential to be even more beautiful. Not only is it pretty, it is quiet except with the birds singing....it has that comfortable feeling. I enjoy working the yard with you and seeing the benefits from the work we do.
