We'll start with this rose. This little rose bush has struggled along but has not bloomed in years. It sits beside the driveway and for a while just kind of got trampled and once Phil mistakenly cut it down with the weed-wacker but this year it has grown enough to get one bloom. It's spot in the yard is more protected now as other things have grown up around it. It is a very nice smelling rose too.
There is a couple purplish ones and a more pink one. I know I used to have a white one but it either is not in bloom or is gone now.
These aren't actually in my yard but just a few steps up the road, beside the road. These are the wild muscadine grapes. They are the ones that will turn purple when they are ripe.
As you can see they don't grow like other grapes. No big clusters just a few here and a few there.
Over by Dukey's run you will see this:
This is one of the dead trees that fell in the last storm. I am really surprised that we didn't hear this one fall. That is one tree. The top broke off and fell then the bottom broke too and fell beside it. Dukey was in his doghouse I am sure since he doesn't appreciate rain and storms much.
And lastly this is the wonderful pile beside the driveway where Phil parks his truck (we have two driveways).
This may seem like junk to some people (well the tire is junk) but this is the beginning of my new fence in the back yard. You all will have to wait for that post though.
Anyway that is the walk through my yard this morning. I had a terrible time taking pictures as it has rained for 3 days in a row and it is so humid that the lense kept fogging up.
