Here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest we have had never-ending rain showers throughout April and May, fortunately the flowers don't seem to mind....too much!It's the wind and cool temps that are not fit for man, nor gardening.
I'm going to do a little party hopping today....I'm going to start with White Wednesday at Faded Charm Cottage where I'd like to share a few photos of my back yard and a white rose named Sally, "Sally Homes" that is! Sally is a "big girl", she's about 8 foot tall and as wide. She takes up some room but is soooo worth it!
Normally, Sally has larger clusters of single flowers, this year, smaller clusters.....don't know if it is the weather or the lack of cutting back. Love the tinge of pink on the edges of the petals and the buds.
Need to plant my bike baskets with annuals, SOON!
Orange wallflower and chives highlight the red advertising on the galvanized bucket.
As you can see, the weather isn't stopping Mother Nature, it is just making it less than pleasant to work out there or just to walk around, with a cup of tea, and enjoy. The battle with black spot on the roses has "barely just begun", as they say.
Hope you had time to visit the other wonderful blogs and all of these parties. I love to read your comments, so please feel free!
Let's hope for sunshine and wishing you a relaxing, fun Memorial Day weekend!
