Roses, Roses, Roses

Who does love roses? They are beautiful to look at and have a heavenly smell. They also come in lots of different shades of my favorite color, pink! I bought these rose bushes from the "Rose Lady" who used to specialize in sell roses of all kinds at the farmers markets in Michigan. Sadly she retired and no longer sell her beauties. I also did not record the names of these roses either, I wish I had!

Some of these roses were almost as big as a luncheon plate. 

I really like the pretty blush of pink on these, a quiet pink.

These remind me of old fashion roses you might see at a farm house.

Like other places in the midwest, we have had a cool down the last few days, with highs only in the 50's and low 60's. It feels more like early October than the last days of July! Our little town had fireworks last night that had been delayed due to rain the night before.  Seriously, I had to put on one of my winter coats to sit out and watch them, yikes! 

I big thank you to Kathryn at Make It Pretty Monday for featuring our side door flowers from last week. Another thanks to Nita at Mod Mix Monday she also featured our flowers. Thank you both!

Hoping your week will be warm and sunny…..

Side Door Flowers

 What is the old saying, backdoor visitors are the best or most welcomed? How about side door visitors? I love this side door with it's brick walkway and flowers lined on both sides. Here is a look at one side of the walkway.

A non flower eating bunny waits to greet you.

In the early summer I love to use pansies, violas and lobelia. Unfortunately I had a deer come up and eat all of these and pull the pansies right out of the planter. I've since replanted this with succulents something the deer don't usually eat.


Doesn't he look like he is winking at you……

It has been a crazy week here weather wise, 2 days of 90's, finally much needed rain, then a cool down.  It was 49 degrees at 7:00 this morning. It will be sunny and low 70's here today, a perfect summer day to me.
