Mom and Dad work on the garden a lot this time of year because this week Roanoke Days is coming up. It's our annual village festival, and a lot of it takes place right out in front of our house. Saturday will find most of our family here, sitting in the front yard to watch the parade go by and having a cookout. The stage where they do most of the singing will be set up right out in front of our house. Lots of people walk by, so Mom likes the garden to look especially nice this time of year.
A lot of the time when they've been outside working, I've been snoopervising from inside, but I always make Mom take me outside afterwards to see what has been changed and improved on. I thought I'd give you a small look at some of the flowers so far.
Mom says I should mention that some of these pictures were taken before weeding was done in certain areas. We're working hard on beating those weeds. I have really enjoyed having time to stop and smell the flowers!
