I did the usual holiday things; spending time with family, friends, cookouts, picnics, parades, fireworks.
I had to make sure that Le Beau Paon showcased her 4th of July spirit:
I keep telling myself I'm going to get more bunting for the front porch and I never seem to do so. I'll add it to the to-do list. It will probably be Number 3,567,900 on the list. ;-)
I found this picture last year online somewhere; so lovely!
There also seemed to be a "fireworks" display going on in my flower gardens.
Red bee balm bursts, with pops of orange asclepsia.......
Climbing rose bush #2 has also exploded.......
It needs to be pruned a little bit, but I decided to wait until it finishes blooming.
I hope you had a happy 4th! I'll be joining A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!
