Drifting After the Rain


This year we've had rain.
That might not sound like much but in our part of Texas we've had extreme drought for a few years.
This spring has brought rain and we are all so grateful.

These drift roses were planted a couple of years ago and never did much.
This year is different and so much better. :)


How is your garden growing this year?

I am having trouble with Blogger so you don't have to reply. We just planted some new rose bushes after the ground finally dried out. We're North of McKinney and it is wonderful to have so much rain and a small water bill!

Wow! They're beautiful! So happy and cheerful looking! I'm working on a garden post right now. I just took some pics of the backyard blooms. The knockouts are going crazy with all the rain. We're so thankful for the rain too.

Beautiful roses!! We too have gotten rain....I have a herb garden in a big wagon, and I was just noticing this morning, how well everything is growing. In another month, I should have enough herbs to supply a third world country!! Do you need any????
Be blessed,

Your roses are gorgeous! It's too soon to tell how our garden will do, it isn't planted yet, and the perennials are just starting to wake up. I am planning a trip to the farmers market tomorrow and I am forging ahead with some planting even though the safe date isn't until the end of May. Sometimes I win and sometimes I lose doing that, but I have checked the long term forecast and I don't see any freezing temps (knock on wood!) for the rest of the month. Until then, I'll just enjoy your flowers :)

We've had a lot of rain also this past few months. Right now, we're in the midst of a five day rainy week. But, it sure has made everything green.

Pretty photos!

So pretty. There is nothing like a good rain to get the garden growing. Glad you finally received some.

Good grief, those roses are gorgeous! Our daughter lives in Texas and their yellow rose is doing great this year too. Such a pretty sight.

The roses are beautiful! When we lived in Texas, I had a hard time with roses. I wanted the delicate antique roses like I had in Alabama but the weather was just too hot for them to survive. These are growing so well!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I never heard of drift roses, but yours are beautiful! I was just sharing with my grandchildren, the importance of rain in the springtime. So happy that you all are receiving that gift.

Those roses are beautiful. My knockout roses are blooming.. I hope to get some hydrangea plants for Mothers Day.. I've heard them whispering among themselves... I've hinted enough LOL!

Dee said...

They are such pretty flowers. It's a wonder what a little rain will do.

Oh and Happy Mother's Day... :)

So far, so good, Stacey! Everything looks like it is coming back to life nicely and I got a few new perennials in as well as a new lilac bush. Can't wait to get some blooms from that!
