A Sunday Stroll Through our Back Yard

Our grapevines didn't yield much this year. Since this is year three, we're hoping next year we'll have more. The major problem has been keeping the birds from eating them.

We have a lovely display of marigolds. We planted these in honor of my mother, who passed away last December. Last year she received a packet of seeds in the mail, and hubby planted them. When they bloomed, she was so happy! We continued the tradition this year as well.
I'm so grateful that we planted knockout roses. Even when the weather is not ideal, the bushes continue to bloom as long as you prune.
One of our stand alone rose bushes, continues to give us beautiful pink blooms.
Occasionally, we find a snake in the shrubbery around our pond. This one was pretty big!
The water lillies are gorgeous in bloom.
We didn't think them out this year, and they are really thick.

Thanks for joining me in a Sunday stroll through our back yard. I hope your Sunday is filled with God's blessings.
