And as usual I can't resist showing my special red rose. I Don't know what it's name is but it was a mother's day gift several years ago. It has done wonderful this year.
My dear friend Bonnie has given me starts of this lovely Japanese Anemone. Another late summer bloomer, it will show off for me until it freezes. I love the clean, brightness of the white against the green backgrounds. And the little circle of yellow in the center looks so cheerful!
I have two roses which I started from branches I got from a dear old German lady who lives nearby. Martha is a story in herself. Maybe one day I can post about her. Again I don't know the name of this rose so I just call it Martha's Peach. It has a lovely fragrance.
Here's my pups, Tudy & Tildy waiting for a doggie cookie treat. Aren't they cute?
I love old farms and barns and farm houses. This old fence-line shot was taken at nearby Ferndale.
Another shot from Ferndale. I can't look at an old place like this without seriously wondering about the families who lived there, what they were like and what kind of life they lived. If only those walls could talk.
A very busy spider. Her web is heavy with dew drops. Click to enlarge for a better view unless you don't like spiders.
Here is a pretty anemone. I got some rhyzomes on sale in June and they are blooming now. I think they are gorgeous.
Here's another pretty rose. I forgot which one it is. But it's still nice to look at.
I saw my Cardiologist today and got a good report. He said my tests came back just fine. I have known for several years that I have coronary artery disease and have been on med's and try to get enough exercise and watch my diet. It's good to know that it's working and the condition hasn't worsened.
Thank you all very much for your prayers. I don't know what I'd do without you!
God bless all.
