Good morning Folks. Yesterday was a lovely foggy morning, today it is a lovely chilly, (53 and with wind chill feels like it is 48), breezy morning with the sun shining in a big blue sky. Tonight it's 'supposed' to get down to 39 and feel like it's 27. Our cottage is cozily warm and we haven't put the heater on yet. The heat was from yesterday's high of 78 and feeling like it was 81. I'll be baking a coffee cake later and that will add more warmth.
I've had several mention that they miss my music, I've missed it too, so I've re-installed my play list of soothing music again. If any of you would rather not listen, there is a pause button and the playlist is where it can be found easily, near the top of the right hand side bar.
Since it is such a lovely day I grabbed my camera again and headed outside.
I want to say to those who ask questions of me about growing roses, I am an amateur growing roses on a shoe string. I occasionally give them a dose of water soluble plant food, sometimes I give them Epsom salts, and sometimes I give them a drink of that nasty smelling alfalfa tea. I water, I pray, and I also talk to them. I've really gotten into the 'old garden' variety as they are much hardier, have wonderful shapes and scents. I've done research online, read books, blogs, etc. I'm still learning.
I hope you enjoy viewing these pictures. I enjoyed taking them, then editing them with my music was so soothing. Remember to click on pictures for a larger view.
The first two pictures are of Ducher.
