My roses are finally blooming and because of all the rain we have had, they look healthy and quite pretty.
The top rose is my favorite and is a climbing rose.
This second rose starts out a creamy white and then it blushes as it matures.
My last rose is so unique in that the outside of the petal is cream colored and the inside of the petal is a bright red.♥♥♥♥
The weather forecast did not look promising, but we still decided to take our trip.
Once a year we take my sister-in-law on a little trip. It’s always hard for them to get together, so this is a good time to catch up on family stuff.
So were drove to the Pacific Coast, to a little town called Cambria.
The first day was cold and windy as we walked on the pier. Luckily we had our big jackets on for warmth.
But the ducks didn’t mind as they rode the waves.
The landscape was as verdant as what I imagined Ireland to be.
Gorgeous plants displayed their best blooms.
One the second day it rained, and we had to walk the beach under an umbrella.
On our last night we enjoyed cocktails in the lounge.
I’m not a drinker but still ordered a Lemon Drop Martini, which was way too strong and had to pass it on to hubby. Hubby ordered a Triple X-Rated Martini, but really meant to say X-Rated Martini, which made the cocktail waitress smile.♥♥♥♥
It’s been hard to blog lately, life has been a little busy, so it’s nice to start again.
Because of the extreme heat, the drought and all the mountain fires that have filled the air with unhealthy particulates, my poor garden has suffered.
But there was a nice surprise the other morning when I did my morning walk through the garden, there was a huge morning glory flower looking fresh and healthy. The only thing is, there was just one big blossom, the others were small.
My magenta colored dahlia keeps on blooming.
And my roses are trying hard to look pretty
We are all yearning for the coolness of fall, and a little bit of rain would help so much.♥♥♥♥
