It’s that time of year I love…. Summer and the 4th of July.
When we designed our home, I just knew it had to be white with navy shutters and red accents…
So my house looks ready for the 4th pretty much every day of the year….
But I did add a few things. The first is an old chalk board and an faded flag on the bench. Keep your old flags, they are great accents.
I wrote on it with a paint marker for fun. It was a quarter at a yard sale and has some damage. It was fun to do…. can you tell I teach at the elementary most of the time…lol. I love art class!
And added some ribbon here and there….
Yep, fake greenery….. I do good to water what is in the ground…lol. I’m not a good container waterer, if it is out of reach of the hose, it’s a goner….
But the front walk is looking good…. The hostas are putting on a show….
Look at this shot from July of last year….
And this is today!
My hydrangea tree is starting to bloom. It is still small, but really filling out. You can see how much it has grown in a year!
There is seven dust on the plants, the jap. beetles are really bad this week.
Hollyhocks and daylily blooms….plus tons of green….
This is my Red Heart Althea tree….
The blooms are so pretty. It definitely matches the red, white and blue!
Sorry this is such a long post…. I will do another one with more before and after pics in my next post.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
