I just cut the first rose blooms of the season! Oh my goodness, I wish you could catch a whiff of the wonderful scent! The lavender blooms are "Heirloom", planted just last year, and the light pink is "Sharifa Asma", planted in 2005. It's going to be a grand year in the rose garden. This morning I spent a little time with the rose catalog thinking about what I would like to plant this year and am about ready to order 7 or 8 more plants.
This weekend I transplanted some garden phlox from the railroad side of the fence to the yard side where we can enjoy them. Several years back I transplanted them hoping to save them from the total yard makeover. They did well and now I'm bringing them back. The low humidity we have here in the Tri-Cities is ideal for phlox and roses - no mildew problems!
Mother's Day was peaceful with dd Melanie making chicken fajitas for us after church. Then I spent the afternoon reading - what a treat!
