My Yard at Dusk

I was out walking in my yard at dusk and thought I would share a few photos. I just love our yard, there is still a lot of things we want to do to make it look nicer but it does feel good to see it when the grass is cut and the weeds pulled. It doesn't feel like June but it is nice outside. Our weather has been on the cool side but it has started to warm up and the flowers are finally starting to look pretty. The petunias still look a little scrawny but the columbine, sweet william and the phlox are looking good. I planted the dwarf alberta spruces last fall and they are doing pretty good, it will be a few years before they get to be four feet or so. At least they didn't winter kill like a lot of my roses did. Sad to say I am going to have to start over again with the roses but I just haven't had the heart to do it this year, maybe next year. They weren't even for sale in the stores when I was looking for them last month, maybe they are now but it sure seems like it is to late to be planting them for this year.
