Some of my plants are still showing some blooms although they suffered through one of the hottest summers we’ve had here in the valley, and they also had to deal with our polluted air filled with smoke from all the California wild fires.
I’m loving the pink and blue.
Some of my roses continue to bloom and continue to receive visitors.
Right now we are enjoying some beautiful autumn weather which will make it possible for me to get out there and do some cleaning in my rustic garden.
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.♥♥♥♥
