Who Me? A Carrot?

This post is dedicated to fingers who pondered that the following plant would be carrots:

These are not carrots:

Nope, not carrots. But plausible guess. The fact is, I dont think the prior people planted any vegetables, despite that crazy garden gate. I think it is all flowers, all the time.

See what I mean? Here are some more new ones:

A blossoming rose bush ( one of the few remaining as most were by the driveway where we got out of our cars and would prick us every time. Bastards!):

More tulips. Never enough tulips:

I have been told these are rhododendrons:

And they will bloom soon:

Good thing I took all of these pictures as B decided he wanted to dig things up and "move them around." He likes things to be in certain groups. He likes order. And here, at least, he is in charge:

Full view of backyard and the neighbors' house, you know, the ones who scoffed at my cat picture taking. More on them later:

And the side view. Notice the neighbors' gorgeous purple lillies. One day ours will bloom too, although we do not have as many:

Happy Memorial Day everyone! Enjoy the weather and the flowers where you are.

Ruth - Thanks Mom! Just wait until the next round of pics. Things are growing too fast for me to keep up.

fingers - I hope your carrots invisible and tasting like flowers, because we have plenty of those.

Debbie - thanks! Can't wait to see what you get when you get your new place!

So many beautiful flowers! I need a picture of the front of the house with all the flowers around it.

Jenny - there will be pics of the front of the house coming soon. Alas, you cannot really see any flowers. Mostly bushes and plants. But the flowering bush is there.
