Roses in the Rain - Around the House
Rain is falling but in spite of the weather, my roses are blooming. Everyday, I hope for sunshine so I can see and smell the sweetness of my roses and peonies. This season has been the coldest May in the last 20 years. Add to that more rain than sunshine and you can understand the flowers staying in tight buds or drooping with water weight.
Yesterday had a little sunshine...Yeah!! Just enough to pop out a few blooms on two of my peonies and one of my rose bushes in the front. I was so happy to see their bright colors and smell those wonderful fragrances. Today, with the rain falling again, I took a few pictures to share and cut a few to enjoy some of that brightness inside.
