House and flowers

It has been a while since I posted some pictures of our house and flowers. This weekend it was finally cool enough (not really cool, but bearable) to be outside working on the yard (which was dry and yellow, but now has started to perk back up after some rain) trimming bushes , forming a smile in the pretty flowers that are in bloom. Our Hibiscus are opening and it is always a happy sight, with the large colorful blooms. The bushes themselves are taller than our cars and it is really just wonderful.
There is also our back yard with tall Rose of Sharon bushes and some other decorative grasses and plants, along with some Hollyhocks and cone flowers. The grass is not perfect, you will see dry spotty patches, but trust me this is much better than the past two months.
So here are a few shots to enjoy and thanks for looking.
