Good Thursday morning to you


Good morning. Not much new happening here, just our normal August weather of heat and humidity. I've been doing very little outside as it's just too miserable to work out there. Have to get out early in the morning and even then the humidity is awful, and so are the mosquitoes. We sure are looking forward to cooler weather, but that probably won't happen until October or November.

Below is a picture of a sweet little rose bud of Phyllis Bide. I have this growing up over my arbor at the back northwest corner of my main garden. These roses are tiny, starting out this color and fading to white. She is a Polyantha, introduced in 1923. She is a great little climbing rose and I look forward to her blooms covering the arbor.

That's it from here. Hope your day is a good one.

I hope you get some breaks from the heat and humidity. We've been having more clouds than rain, too.

Wish I could package up and send you all some of the lovely weather we've had here this summer!
