At This time of the Year.....

The sun is shining and the weeds are growing so at this time of the year it is hard to find time for my other creative pursuits. The garden calls and it is so lovely to be out in the cooler part of the day. This is a new rose I weakened and got this year. It is called Pink Panther and this is the first flower. The roses have done so well this Spring - I think all the rain we have had has had an positive impact for them. When we came here there were roses everywhere but the trees had grown up and many of the gardens were too shady for roses so I took them out. My preference has been for plants that have a longer season than the roses but this garden is one that I have turned over to roses as they do well in this particular place. I am not good at spraying so the roses that are in the garden are those that can cope with little attention other than being pruned in late winter
