Refreshing drops on the leaves
The dense morning fog deposited a multitude of water droplets on the leaves of our rose bushes. Every square inch was touched with a moisture laden blessing.
A couple of days ago we posted a picture of two buds. Today they both opened and showed off their color.
First rose blooms this year
Our rose bush out front is putting on some blooms.
Hopefully we’ll get a lot of pretty roses this year. It seems like the rose bushes are getting ready to really pop!
Yellow rose and blue petunia
Both of these flowers are in our herb and flower garden that we planted during our COVID-10 isolation. The yellow rose, pictured in yesterday’s post, has opened up and, as promised, is shining. We wanted to also share an image of this blue petunia.
Another rose getting ready to shine
This rose bud is blooming on one of the rose bushes that we planted in our herb and flower garden during our COVID-19 isolation this spring/summer. This new bush has given us several pretty bloom events this summer.
Got three for you
I missed the rose in the first photo blooming yesterday. So out for pictures I go, and there to my delight is another bud starting to bloom (second photo). And then while taking the second photo low and behold I spotted yet another bud hiding under the rose in bloom. Three roses to share with you all.
Rose in bloom near a crime scene
Well, maybe not a crime scene, however some dastardly critter (most probably a rabbit) has stolen one of the two remaining rose buds from this rose bush. I suspect that the perpetrator of the rose bud theft is also responsible for the wanton destruction of a couple of our sweet corn seedlings in the garden.
First rose bud beginning to bloom
This morning the first rose bud was opening up a bit. You can see there are two more in the wings so we’ll have three pretty soon.
A couple more photos from out front
In the front of Roadtirement’s “home base” in central Indiana we have a mulched strip on either side of the front door. Here’s a couple of images:
This is a new rose bush that we planted about a week ago. The first rose bud is showing some color. There are two more buds developing to the right of the big one.
There are lots of little mushrooms showing up in the mulch beds. The remnants of maple tree whirligig flying seeds are also in view, along with some unidentified green sprouts of some kind.
