The roses in my front yard look like they'll be done in about 2 days. I cut a bunch of dead flower heads off a couple days ago to encourage them to bloom. I have some in the back yard that are mostly buried by thorn trees, deadly nightshade, and various other weeds and vines and such coming through the fence from the neighbor's yard. I need to buy a bunch of lawn and leaf bags and start chopping it all down again. I have lilies with buds but no flowers yet sticking up a foot past the top of the front porch. I'll snap a pic of them one of these days when it has some flowers.
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington.

That's a spring thing for us.   Pollen counts in the thousands.  We're over it.   Summer means hot and humid.  Our warnings read about drowning while breathing.
