Good Sunday morning to you!
I spent a big part of the early morning pulling weeds and deadheading roses. I do believe that this has been the hottest summer known to man! The temp here has reached over 90 degrees every day since the first week of July and this weeks forecast offers no relief.
I always take my camera phone to the garden with me. Most of the photos on this blog are taken with my T-mobile MyTouch camera phone. It amazes me that an “afterthought” camera could take good pictures. I cut some roses this morning to bring in the house and I am always clicking a snapshot at what’s in bloom. Here a few pictures from today’s garden walk.
David Austin English Rose
Such magnificent blooms this year.
My Momma would be proud of this rose planted in her memory.
This is a bloom from the rose bush that started my Chadwick Lane garden.
This pink bush was spindly and sickly when we moved here in 2005. I was able to nurse her back to health, but am still unsure of her proper name. No matter, with such beautiful blooms, she is a winner everywhere she goes!
Last, but certainly not least is Dream Come True.
This rose is an attention getter and is full of blooms this week!
