What in the World is That?

Yesterday I went out to check the grape vines hubby planted to grow on the arbor over our backyard swing. Look baby grapes!!! Aren't they cute? There are a lot of them, too. Last year we had one tiny little bunch, but this year looks like we'll have a great crop.

We've been talking about filling in the pond because it is just too much work to maintain. But yesterday, I caught this picture of the water lillies in bloom and the fish swimming around it. You can see the baby's breath, which is now in bloom.

I caught this beautiful rosebud on the knockout rose bush. Our kockout roses are really gorgeous this year, too. I think the rain and early warm weather have had a significant impact on all our garden flora. I love this picture with the moisture from the earlier rain clinging to the leaves.

Remember the beautiful wisteria? Well, sad to say all the blooms are gone now. Here is what it looks like now.

We had to turn on the air conditioner last night, much earlier than ever before. All day, we had been promised severe storms and the humidity rose so high that we were miserable by bedtime, so I turned on the air. I haven't ventured out yet to see what today brings, but again there is a threat of rain. Rain I can handle, but the humidity is a killer.

Hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by and touring my back yard.
