Always hate to see summer go even though I like so many of the late summer bloomers in the garden. Here's a few samples of what's happening now. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking :-)

That bouquet is very nice! Did you say your wife makes the arrangements? Or do you? I forget.
Last 3 pics: Rose of Sharon?
Anyhow, every looks great Boxofrox!

Hi, Boxo! wonderful and fantastic gorgeous Booooeautiful bouquet! so sorry I would be plastering my whoo-hoos in detail about how much I miss your roses and how wonderful and spectacular they look, but alas, I am under such bad and horrible deadlines (pulling constant all-nighters) so I asked Jim from now on to keep an eye out for me for my rose buddies, since I no longer have any breathing room to visit our wonderful Gallery anymore! So I have to keep it all too disastrously short. But I am so happy to see your Roses and miss A.D. to the TEEEEEEE! Hugs, Serena

Gee tanks yous twos ;-)

Jim, my wife seldom does anything but enjoy whilst in the garden. Every thousandth bouquet or so she might participate in assembling. The red is a mandevilla (the one under the bouquet in the first pic). The other two are ROS at each end of the Wall of Easy.

Thanks KG, you are always so sweet. If you have a lot of work, you are more fortunate than most.......make hay while the sun shines girl :-)

I always thought you assembled the bouquets Boxofrox. But, recently I must of mis-read one of your posts. I thought it said, your wife does it, so, I became confused. lol

I came back to look at that bouquet Boxofrox! Perfect combination of roses/flowers used on this one.

RE: Some September Samplers

Boxo, I have MISSED YOU SO MUCH!!! I also had to come back to take another huge breath of the GORGEOUS BOUQUET from your thread, and also to reassure Jim! He is very frightened that his faded L.E. bloom is gonna make people think he is a wacko, because he loves that bloom....

I asked Jim to keep an eye out for me whenever you post too, so I can do my Whoo-hoos. LOL, I'm definitely making hay before the sun shines. I am up until 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. that's how bad the deadlines get! and half the time I only get 3-4 hours of sleep and feel like a train wreck too, haha!

Hugs! and am looking forward to getting to see more roses to help "caffeine-me-up", lol! Nothin' better than Box O' Roses, to resurrect me after one of those nightmare all-nighters, hehe!

Ok, I figured out why I became confused about your wife making the bouquets. lol. Link to one of your older threads below Boxofrox.
Glad Dahlias Bouquet thread.
Don't mind me Boxofrox, I'm losing it. lol

Here is a link that might be useful: Boxofrox thread

RE: Some September Samplers

Jim, That's the one in a thousandth I was talking about. Glads are so hard to work around that I'm thinking I made her do that one ;-)
