First of the Month meme

I decided to move this meme, here, to the family blog.  Having two photo memes on Murrieta365, was confusing to some folks; I thought I'd simplify.  If you've traveled here from Murrieta365, welcome, if you're new to this meme, glad to have you.

Yes, I still have a couple of hollyhocks in bloom!

Most are going or have gone to seed.

My small yard, looking tward to patio.  That dot of red is the hollyhock in the top photo, leaning out of the flower bed.

The other red is a Fourth Of July Rose.  I always think these roses look very painterly.


The goal of First of the Month is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first of each month. It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is, is fine. It can even be a record of where you are each First of the Month. I'll open the linky each month on the 1st, and leave it open for a week or so, to give everyone a chance to post. (Please link back to this blog, thanks.)
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,

There has been a problem with Mr. Linky.  I think I have it fixed.



  2. The back link requirement won't let me link up. I'm here.

  3. Love the splashes of color still in your yard! :)
    My hollyhocks have been done for about a month but I was really pleased with how long they kept on going!

  4. Beautiful yard pics! I was late for the linky ,here is my post:
