2017, In The Garden

Blooms In My Frontyard In July

Last night, we had a thunderstorm coming through North Texas. Sometimes, wind gusts went over 50 mph. It brought some cooler air with it, which was so appreciated this morning. The temperatures were more comfortable in the lower 70s, than in the muggy mid 80s. This was a good opportunity to sent Katelynn and Sara out to clean the pool in the backyard. The storm dropped quite few leaves in the water. The pool had to be taken care off, before algae set in, and we have a perfect habitat for mosquitos.

Since the Texas heat is relentless at this time of the year, the plants were happy to get some good amount of water as well. Between some brown (that’s due to me neglecting my frontyard a little bit lately), I have some flowers blooming in the frontyard. My crape myrtle began to bloom, while I was down with a virus, last week. It was a welcome sight, after being in bed for a few days. ❤ And I’m happy, the milkweed began to bloom as well. Soon, the Monarch butterfly will be on its way south, again. My yard will be a good rest area for the Monarch Highway. 😉
