We were on a little getaway last week, so I don't have any decorating projects or new treasures to share with you.
( I did get to go to a huge, packed to the brim antique store in Klamath Falls, but I didn't buy anything!
There were a couple of vintage cameras that I passed up that tempted me.)
What's really happening around here is all happening outside, as everything is in bloom.
This is a pink "sexy rexy" floribunda rose.
Some of my roses developed black spot, but a friend who works in a local garden center recommended a natural spray that seems to be helping. (Safer Garden Fungicide)
The yellow coreopsis opened up while were out of town.
The shasta daisies are just beginning to open.
The pink geraniums in our patio pots are thriving.
Our hydrangeas are just now starting to open.
Three out of four lavender plants are blooming, but one is looking bit sickly.
This yellow floribunda rose is blooming abundantly this year.
I have a David Austin Glamis Castle white rose that has buds, but hasn't opened up yet,
and a rose bush with beautiful yellow roses tinged in red, (that I can't remember the name of),
that bloomed once already this year and has new buds about to open.
I really have no gardening knowledge or experience, so I look up questions online or consult friends.
But in truth, any beauty that blossoms in my backyard is a gift of God...
a much appreciated and much enjoyed gift!
