Interlude, with Roses

Taking a break from kitchen stuff for today. Tomorrow our tile will be in, and we will spend the weekend installing our backsplash.

The garden received some much-needed attention, and I took a few pictures of the roses that are blooming, despite the neglect. So here, for your enjoyment, are ROSES!

New Dawn climber

Foxglove and miniature roses

More miniatures, in front of the Alba and knockouts.

Constance Spry, and old garden rose, I think

Easy Elegance? I don’t remember this one’s name. The scent is wonderful.

The is the oldest climber in the garden. I think this is MardiGras.

Tropicana? It smells wonderful and the blooms are almost 5 inches across.

I do love roses! You can see the peonies, they’re about done now.

Rowley loves the garden, too. Look at that – is that a smile?

Chippy is enjoying the weather, too.

Took a Paws For Life rescue kitty for a vet checkup, too.

Himmy the Himalayan is ready for adoption! He will be much cuter when his haircut grows out.

Back to the kitchen this weekend. Hope you enjoyed the flowers.
