Diablo Spirea and Annabelle Hydrangeas, side by side.
The cone flowers and pansies have reseeded themselves in new

but as the name suggests, they turn a dusty rose as they mature.
The Wave petunias in our window boxes have been given a trim
in hopes they will fill out again during the month of August.
The old wood shutters need to be painted this summer, so you can see

It won't be me climbing up the ladder.
