|THE ROSES BLOOMED MAY 7. 2015|
This year the Red Knock Out roses are absolute velvety perfection.
The clematis blooms are huge this year and gorgeous. It must have been more than 15 years ago that I planted it. For about 13 of those years it would only get two or three blooms on it and then it would just be an ugly-ish leafy vine, until it would "accidently" get weed whacked. For the last couple of years I have been putting my potted mandevilla vine in front of it. That probably kept its roots cool enough for it to thrive. I gave it a dose of rose fertilizer when I fed the roses in early April, so that may account for all of the huge blossoms it is getting this year.
My chives were green all winter. During the coldest times they were frozen, but still green. I moved their pot up close to the house for winter. They were the first plants blooming this year. I didn't know that chive blossoms got this large. They look so pretty and fluffy, but as pretty as they are, they smell like chives.

I just love this time of year. Ah, Spring!
Here's a little bouquet of roses to wish everyone a happy Mother's Day!
|HAVE A WONDERFUL MOTHER'S DAY!|
