Honestly I have a lot of local travel stories still in the queue – all backed up and waiting to be shared. But the garden called me so I lingered there taking time to smell the roses and watch the bees among the herbs.
First the roses. Though they’re temperamental I continue to grow them for their singlular fragrance and beauty.
This is Doris Day and I think it does her justice. If only you could smell her sweetness!
The orange rose is another beauty and I wish I could remember her name! Though that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet – as this one does!
Next are the faithful herbs that fill my garden beds with color. The lavender is my favorite.
The Platinum Blonde – another name that makes sense I think – should bloom in the next few weeks.
And finally here are the bees – they love the catmint as much as the cats do.
They love the purple sage too.
Yesterday was hot and muggy, the last day of spring. This morning is cool and overcast, and rain is gently falling.
Welcome to summer. 🙂
