Summer flowers

I’ve been neglecting my backyard in favor of working out at the garden and canning. The plan is that once the heat breaks in September (or October), we will finish pulling the f—–g privet so that we can put in our chicken coop next spring. It will also give us the space to plant a few blueberry bushes. The back half of our yard has so much potential…for later.

For now, I have my Mothers’ Day hibiscus my momma gave me and some blooming surprise lilies previous owners left behind. I also have two morning glories working their way up a banister. It looks like one of them should start blooming within days.
