Sunday Summer Sunshine
Some early summer color for you this lovely Sunday.
My roses are blooming quite nicely in spite of my neglect of them. This one is one of my oldest roses, called Gold Medal. It’s the hardiest, most disease resistant rose and extremely fragrant. When the bud is fully opened (there’s a word for that, and I can’t remember it right now), the edges turn a lovely coral pink.
I had a scare while photographing this rose. I had my little Lily out in the yard with me and I hyperfocused on my camera and its settings. I turned around and Lily was nowhere to be seen or heard. Oh my gosh, I was in a total panic. I searched everywhere calling for her, thinking she had snuck out under the gate and taken off. Thank goodness she has a tag, but she’s so small I had horrible visions of her being hit by a car. We’ve had the weekend alone and have bonded so well that I think I would have been completely crushed had anything happened to her.
I looked and looked, and came back in the yard and here the stinker comes out of nowhere like, “What, mom?”
How can you get mad at this little face?
Have a great Sunday, everyone. I’m off to the mall to buy my son-in-law a new Seahawks hat as a combo early Father’s day gift / thank-you-for-helping-me-in-the-yard gift. Then we’re all coming back here and the little tykes are going to play in the sprinkler.
Yay for summer!
