Mid-summer roses

Hot muggy weather is back after an amazing respite of cooler temperatures.  During the nice weather I was busy with other things, and now I’m home looking out at a yard that really needs some attention if it’s going to continue to look like a garden someone loves.  Unfortunately this particular someone turns into a wimp amid mosquitos, high heat and humidity, so the yard may go into a corresponding slump.

In spite of that I did get out and give all the roses and patio pots a big watering, and then went out and took this picture of one of my favorites, Gruss an Aachen.   Aaaahh…so lovely in her delicate coloration.

But watering is only the start of what is needed out there right now….sigh.

About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.
