Clouds

Yes, rain clouds which have just given us a short shower! Feels marvelous. Hope this cool, drippy weather helps firefighters defeat a wildfire menacing our nearby Blue Mountains for the last four weeks.

I was looking at some pics of my rose garden from earlier this year. How different it looks now!
The first one is from April, the second I took yesterday.



There's lots more to do here, but I'm satisfied with what I've done so far. I hope to fill in all the empty spots with a few more roses and companion plants next year.

Wow, I'm jealous...we have not had any rain yet here in Olytown. Seattle had quite a bit this morning, but now the sky is blue and the sun is shining, and my brown lawn is still pining away for some moisture!!! I had a feeling we weren't going to get any this week.

Your rose garden is lovely!!!!
