A Fine Day In June

One recent afternoon I let the dogs out into the back yard and it was so pleasant out there that I grabbed my camera and snapped a few pictures. In the first, Fergus and Clover were sniffing around the Silver Mint and severely pruned Rose of Sharon. That variegated vine behind them is a Kiwi:

Fergus and Clover again. This time they were running and playing. Daphne would normally be joining in, but she was busy at the fence endeavoring to annoy the neighbors' dogs:

My two little Teacup Roses were growing at breakneck speed. I'd snipped off all the spent flowers, but one perfect, tiny red rose remained. There was plenty of buds and there is likely to be a steady supply of blossoms all summer long:

All three of my Clematis vines were doing well:

Seamus, Fergus and Daphne posed next to my tomato plants for a photo:

Wally hung around the back door, happy to be outside but no longer into the play which so excites the younger dogs:

I also checked out the front of the house, where a pink rose bush was just beginning to bloom:

And just below the pink rose bush, this striped beauty was lighting up the sidewalk:

Passersby on the sidewalk often stop to admire the bright colors. Indeed, it was a fine day in June:
