We have dark pink and white vincas in the other part of the front bed -- along with those weird mini Christmas trees we planted last fall.
I have a sunflower wreath on the front door. This wreath is several years old, but it still looks good so I keep using it. Sunflowers make me think of summer. Kip is peeking out the door to see what I'm doing.
We planted this crepe myrtle 3 springs ago. Shortly after we planted it, right as it was starting to bloom, there was a late hard freeze that really damaged it. It has taken it 2 full years to recover, so this is the first summer that it's really bloomed.
[Mini-rant: Is anyone else having problems with blogger uploading multiple pictures together? It is only letting me upload one picture at a time, and it is REALLY FRUSTRATING!]
