Another Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. . .


We have indeed been blessed over the past week; what with temperatures in the upper 70’s to low 80’s, low humidity and sky bluer than a pastel colored blueberry.

A Little Ray of Sunshine - a Major improvement to my blah backyard of just a few weeks ago

All of my flowers are smiling and dipping their heads in thanks to the moderate temperatures, although I have become the morning shower and afternoon sprinkles with my trusty green watering cans.

If you are following my blog about my rose garden then you will be pleased to know they are doing just fine.  Here is another photo of Don Juan – in the 3rd day of blossoming, and I’ve attached a couple of photos of Tropicana, which is salmon in color with what appears to be a tad of cream.

Don Juan gets more beautiful by the day

Here is Mr. Lincoln – a  red red rose in his early blooming stage. Join me again as we watch my garden grow.

Beginning to show signs of life


About scoop1942

I am 74-years young with six grandchildren and one great-grandson, two great granddaughters, professional and recreational blogger, previous graphic artist, hospitality industry veteran, Jill of all trades; master of a few, plus hobbiest, re-cycler and dreamer. My steadfast companion for 17 years, Bubba, who is now deceased, reminded me daily of what loyalty was all about. I now have a rescued dog who has turned out to be the best dog I've every had; Annie, who is part Shepherd, part Boston is sweet natured and a wonderful companion. You can now find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn. Oh my; while social media may not have been meant for Grandmothers, it has sure turned my world on end . . . what else will technology bring our way. I just recently got a smart phone and texting is my game . . . LOL
