Front and Back

3675 is officially the home definition of a mullet – business in front and party in the back!

Our new bi-level flagstone patio is finished. AND IT’S AMAZING. But it’s too messy back there to share right now; we need to clean up things like sprinkler heads that fell victim to the Tongans slinging stone and weeds that grew while we looked away (we’ll tackle it all this weekend right before we sit down and crack a few cold ones by our new firepit).

In the meantime, here are a few pics of the business part of our property. I’ve kept the front yard looking extra glorious while the back yard’s been under transformation into a dream playground. For the first time ever, all dozen of my rose bushes are blooming in glorious union. Blush pink, blood red, hybrid, floribunda, orange – just too much beautiful business.

Enjoy my handiwork for now, and come party in the back soon…

A dozen red roses, just for you.

Little floribundas, finally making an appearance after two years.

Growing my first longstem!

Once again, my double delights are so delightful I may need to protect them against thieves.

    Can’t wait to visit the “mullet”! And be prepared! A rose thief may strike again. They are just too beautiful to ignore. Obviously, the tender loving care has made a difference in your rose garden. On to the backyard! After a few beers, of course……..
