Hello Folks ~ The weather down here has been perfectly gorgeous today. I basically puttered. Put the stuffed steak rolls in the crockpot early, they are smelling really yummy right now. I steamed some fresh asparagus and made a vinaigrette sauce for them. Will fix ‘instant’ Idaho mashed potatoes. We’ll probably have coffee ice cream for a bit of dessert.
Yesterday we went to HD and I visited the garden dept. while DH was in the electrical dept. At first I was just going to buy a couple of inexpensive things to add to my garden, then I spied a nice selection of roses. Uh oh. They had some knock outs, I bent over and smelled several of them and was totally disappointed in their lack of scent, at least to me I didn’t notice any. Then, I started getting a waft on the breezes of a heavy rose scent. I walked around the selection and finally found them. I ended up getting Fragrant Cloud. After we got home, I picked the lone bud and brought it in and have been enjoying that heavenly scent all day. I did a google search after I got home and saw that this particular rose might have a bit of BS. Oh bummer. I’ll keep my eye on it, keep it in full sun, with plenty of air circulation. Lots of wonderful reports on how wonderful the scent is and how beautiful the blooms are. A few people even wrote (some from FL) that they don’t have much of a problem with it having bs, so I hope that is true.
The first two pics of Fragrant Cloud are from yesterday, the last one is from this morning.
Next two, Cocktail
George Tabor azalea, my first bloom for this season.
I woke up this morning to see this opened. What a beauty.
That’s it for now.
Thank you all for visiting.
