Today is a lazy day for us. We always feel a bit beat up after a three-day weekend. That, and it's hot today so we are doubly lazy, and it was hot all weekend. The heat totally slows me down. I'm melting. In a bit we are going to lather on the sunscreen, put on baseball caps and go for a ride in my husband's hobby car, a restored '62 Corvette. Destination? Who knows--someplace cool? Probably not as far as to the beach, but maybe halfway, perhaps to Alice's Restaurant for a frosty drink.
Everyone in town agrees that this is a banner year for the roses! We've had such good rain this year they must think they are living in England! Here are some photos I captured over the last month. Next week, a veggie garden update and more knitting.
|The grande dame of our garden is Climbing First Prize.|
|Her pretty sister is Climbing Eden, also seen below.|

|We have several Iceberg roses--a tree and some shrubs. Best white rose ever.|
