Well, I've been singing that song all weekend!
And now it's Monday and I'm out in the garden singing "and the weeds came up"! But it's so nice that the ground is damp and the weed removal is, at least, easier.
I picked up my latest online auction purchases on Friday. 10 Angel Face roses which I'm thinking I might put along the eastern side of the driveway.
Pretty things, aren't they!
But look at this one! What the . . . . ?
Even before it started raining, we had been suffering through humidity up in the 80-90% range. It's been just so uncomfortable. Everything feels damp, especially me. And of course, all the roses are showing signs of the dreaded blackspot.
Our extended period of hot, dry weather has sadly claimed some victims in the garden. Here is an English Box that I have had in this big terracotta pot for years.
Sadly, it is not looking like it's going to recover! Also, the pot on the verandah has in it a pink mandevilla vine which was the pride of my mother when she lived in her unit. I brought it here when she moved, carefully re-potted it into the big terracotta pot and it was growing up the verandah post mixed up with the Leander rose. I'm not going to tell her that it's died!
I think this is Mr Lincoln. The blooms are like red velvet.
And Lucetta keeps on flowering. Love it!
