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.
This is the same rose we posted a couple of days ago. This morning we noticed pinkish spots on the petals. Can anybody chime in and help us identify what’s going on with this rose?
The amazing progress of flowers as they grow and bloom
More blooms to come
More buds showing in background
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.
Rainy day but a pretty rose.
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.
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!
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.
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.
This pretty rose bloom was gracious enough to add some beauty to our front yard!
