Roses and violets

 One of my favorites, the violet of last spring and summer disappeared everywhere else in the yard but reappeared in this pot next to the pink geranium below. One of the color combinations I like best in the garden - purple and yellow.

 This rosebush is doing well this year and has over a dozen blooms at the same time. It must like the used coffee grounds I've been putting around its roots.

 The rose petals are a deep pink with a pale underside that gives the flower a velvety, lined look and feel.

This pink geranium has done very well outdoors in the sun and heat. It spent the winter months near a basement window and had only a few leaves at best.
