Today summer came back and with a vengeance!
It was somewhere in the 90’s today with lots of humidity.
So, you would think after a long day of working out in this, the last thing I would want to do is be outside!
Nope, not me!
When I got home today, and after unloading my new bounty from the Garden Center (yes, it’s an addiction!)
I did a quick tour of my garden and saw my yellow climbing rose was blooming!
|Her name is Golden Sunset and she has a glorious honeysuckle like scent!|
|This is my favorite rose of all time~ and yes, she’s a mail order girl! Jung’s Seeds about six or seven years ago. She’s hardy to Zone 4 and disease resistant.|
|She gets around 12 feet tall but right now she’s a little sprawled out.|
A few other things were blooming as well!
|My Gift Peony|
|These were given to me by my neighbor who’s friend dug out a Peony hedge from her yard about ten years ago. Nobody knew the variety but oh do they have the sweetest scent!|
|My Huskers Red Penstemon finally boomed.|
|Pretty little flowers remind me of foxglove…..|
and my little fern…
|My Japanese painted fern has seen better days. It’s not as full this year. I might have to move it.|
and my new D&J’s Fuchsia
I’m going to start him in a ceramic pot on the deck
and work my way up to a hanging basket
