The first blooms that have not been chewed on this year, summer has been hard on this rose. It smells so good and I love the cream center. Makes me think of a 1950's glass bottle of milk with cream on top.

All of my Phlox have been eaten by grasshoppers but they keep on blooming.I am SOoooo ready for fall, winter and 2012.

What a depressing year this has been for so many.

The temperature has dropped to a pleasant 74 this morning.
The flowers and I will be very happy if it stays like this.When all the plants and flowers look spent, just see how the Zinnias never fail.
I hope it is nice and cool where ever you are.
Have a happy day.

All of the lilies bloomed out in the birthday flowers, the roses didn't last long that you see in the header.
My garden is sad, it has been so hot and dry,and grass is not looking good.

There is some color and the butterfly is happy. If you enlarge you can see it.

I must retract my words about how hard I had it with the window and the blinds inside.

The Bennie was in the heat and and he had a much harder job then I did.

Alls well that ends well.

The Bennie had me up early this morning washing window's.
He did the out side and I think he had the easy job I had to do the inside and the blinds.They are so nice and clean-----I can see out better now.

Today I dream of walking down a country road;

If you take the high road to kindness, understanding, and faith in mankind.

You will always get like treatment and your deeds returned to you in kind.
Have a lovely day.

What is happening to my Neon Sedum?

It has looked so good and this week it is falling apart
The rosemary looks good even if the rabbits did dig under it and put baby's.I have lost a bunch of flowers this year,
my white rose is not doing good, it must be this hot dry weather.
