Neighbors Flower and Mine, Plus Sidewalks

I was out taking pictures last night and got these of my neighbors flowers. This is a double Poppy, but I do not remember what kind it is. It is not like my Poppies.

Now pictures of her beautiful Roses.




Hubby and I worked on edging our sidewalk out to where we park today and I did not get a before picture but this is the after. We gained 4 inches in width after removing the grass that grew along the sides. I also used salt on the cracks to kill the roots that were left after the grass was shoveled away. What a difference it makes. Now we have a few more areas to do but only a little at a time. We are too old to do it all at one time.

These pictures were taken last night before the storms came through. This is my pink Peony.

These are my Sundrops, Common Geranium and I do not know what the dark purple ones are.

This Rose cam from the next one you will see and they are nothing alike. This one is red and double. It came from the roots of my ground cover rose in the next picture.

My Ground Cover Single Pink Rose.
