This is a knockout rose, they are a very nice fuss free variety. We have three of these bushes and they grow very well with little help from me. Just a little water now and then.
Zinnias are a good standby here in our area and mine are just starting to bloom. I planted them from seeds this spring. They didn't come up real well, I think my flowerbed must need some fertilizer or something. This one is sure a pretty shade of pink!
A nice lady in our church shared some seeds from her garden with some of us last year and one of the things she gave us was dill. So now I have dill growing in our garden. I know I could make dill pickles with it, but I didn't plant any cucumbers this year, so it's just there looking decorative for now. (: I don't really have time to do any canning this year anyways.
All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever. 1 Peter 1:24-25
