What is Blooming in Your Yard?

This morning I took some photos of the pretties that are making an appearance in my yard right now.  Here is just one of the beautiful blooms off one of the Hydrangea Bushes
Next, can you tell what is growing right next to the Crepe Myrtle?
That would be a gorgeous Eucalyptus Tree.  I have always wanted one!
One of my biggest concerns when I found out I was going to be moving was that I had a great love for our 4 large Natches variety Crepe Myrtle trees. They adorned our front yard in the last house and I loved them very much.  Well, I was thrilled to find out that we have several (in multiple varieties) at the new house and they have put on quite a show for us.
We also have a couple of rose bushes that are working hard to make us smile.  Both of them appear to be climbers that have been neglected and have gotten lost under other bushes.  How can you not love something that has that much desire to live and does it with such beauty?
Here is a close up of the only gardening I have done so far.  Since we moved right before the 4th of July I was inspired to do a red, white and blue (yes, there are tiny blue flowers on the trailing plants) planting.
I won't be doing much gardening until fall arrives with some cooler air and fewer critters in the bushes, but I have been enjoying the show that was already here!

Aren't you glad that you are in a house with an established yard? I think that it would be so hard to have a yard at a new house with absolutely nothing in it. I just love Crepe Myrtles. The ones around here are gorgeous, just like yours.

Roses and weeds are the only things that seem to do well in my yard.
