Day 132 - Mediterranean Pinks


This is my favorite ground cover! Mediterranean pinks, they spread and keep blooming all summer long. To spread them you just shake some of the seeds into your hands and then plant them where you want them. It comes up every year, if you have a wall for it to cascade over it is beautiful.

Day 131 - Dogwod


I love dogwood trees! We don't have any but they do at the church so I took a picture of them there. I don't believe they are as pretty as they were last year though. I did like the brick background as it adds an interest touch to the picture.

Day 130 - Chicken Jump


Lexie can jump really high as you can see in this picture. It is a good thing she hasn't figured that out or the chicken that was on the counter here would have been all gone! She was determined to have some of the chicken that was up there after dinner was over which gave me a perfect opportunity to get this action shot.

Day 129 - Fresh Bloom


I love this rose the colors are just beautiful!

Day 121 - Crown of Thorns

Crown of thorns

This plant is called, "Crown of Thorns", which I thought was an interesting plant. You can see the thorns going up the stem so I would say it is name right.
