Journal for Late July
OK last one was getting a bit long.
Beautiful morning here. I look out on my personal rose and lily garden. Silk Road is so beautiful it brings tears to the eyes in the morning sunlight. Some LO cross I got a few years back has been the star of the garden this summer. I can't remember what it is but it has small trumpets of peachy pink with orange centers. MY favorite Mother's Rose (J and P) has one last rose in this bloom cycle held high and beautiful. The English roses are regrouping for their next bloom cycle which should start in about 2 weeks.
I have invited the COmmunity Care Center to bring the Seniors out to see the garden around the 1st of Aug when I hope many more roses will be blooming. THey all get such a kick when I bring in my left over flowers on Tues! Last week we had a whole crowd of retired gardeners around us wanting to know the names of everything in the buckets. Warms my heart so much! I go on my way with a big smile on my face and think my work is appreciated even if sales have been slim.
Best sales yet this summer over this weekend...as good as Father's Day.
