Roadtirement is going to take a break

Pearly Gates morning glory

Sometimes you need to take a break from blogging. That’s what Sher and I have decided we are going to do for a while.

Not to worry, we are both doing fine. Our recent doctor visit resulted in good reports for each of us. We did have to get blood tests today after fasting, yuck. Maj’s diet is still going well, and his daily bike rides for exercise are slowly increasing in duration and distance.

And for those of you who caught our last post on Roadtirement know that we asked you to guess the destination of our next adventure. Today we’re giving the “reveal” as they say on the reality shows. Drumroll………….   We are going to Seattle and the state of Washington.  We’ve visited there before, and our daughter, son-in-law and grandson live near Seattle so fun visits coming! It is beautiful country with lots of things to see and do.

We are not leaving forever, just taking some time off. Thanks so much for your support and we’ll be back sometime.

 

This rose has a hitchhiker

This rose has a hitchhiker on one of its petals. What looks like a small bee is actually a hoverfly. No, it is not a sweat bee, although many call it that. Hoverflies only have two wings. (Bees have four wings) It does like sweat on humans, and is also a great pollinator.

Two and four days ago we posted photos of one of our Asiatic Lilies and a rose bud just beginning to bloom. Today both plants displayed some great progress in the blooming arts, adding even more color to our backyard flower and herb garden.
