Every Rose Has Its Thorn

Spring is sort of bittersweet for me. The flowers and fruits growing in the yard are beautiful, but the allergies are K I L L I N G me this year! I wish I could fully enjoy the season without the extremely unbearable sneezing, itching, irritable allergies.

The two climbing roses we planted five years ago have completely taken over the pergola in the backyard. They're gorgeous!
I never imagined they'd grow this much when we first planted them.
Pat had to leave behind his grapevine in IL, so we gave him one for Father's Day a couple of years ago. I think we're actually going to get a good crop of grapes this year!
These are the strawberries a few weeks ago. Now they're full of ripe strawberries, which the girls love to pick...if they get there before the bunnies, snails, and birds.
