Garden Phlox

Native to the U.S., garden phlox is a flowering plant that can be found just about anywhere; in fact, I came across this beautiful flower while driving my car down the road just a few days ago. It’s hard to miss their vivid colors.

Coral Knock Out Rose

My mom grabbed some new roses this year for a landscaped area we just put together in the backyard. It was a long time coming and nice to complete finally in 2021. Here’s one of the Knock Out Roses she picked up from the nursery.

We planted three in a row, but this is the one that’s blooming prolifically now. As you can see, the buds start out a very dark coral—somewhat like a red-orange—before they get lighter and lighter fading to light pink.

We have this growing near the back of the house in the landscaping. I wish it were in a better location so we could see it more.

Baby Mantis & Moss Rose Purslane

We have a little baby mantis living in a flower box on our deck. It’s an amazing experience seeing this guy come out to hunt every morning. We’ve had handfuls of these pop up in our landscaping in the past, but it’s been at least a few years. As of now this one is about the size of a quarter. We hope it stays!
