More Beauty

We have just had 3 days of almost non-stop torrential rain (sorry to my blogging friends in the Southern States as I know you long for this) accompanied by high winds from the Arctic Circle. Not nice at this time of year, especially as we were basking in warm sunshine a month ago. I did have some damage in my garden, but nothing too drastic, just broken plants and a little flooding. So most of the roses are still in tight bud, but managed to photo a few this afternoon, plus some other bits.

To think that this plant has saved the lives of many heart patients


Escallonia Apple Blossom

Variegated Photinia


Mock Orange

Thanks so much for signing my Guest Book, Barbara. Would you also please look at the 2nd post down on Body of Christ and leave the one word that you think described you in the Body of Christ. Thanks !!

I am awed at the beauty of your garden every time you post your pictures from it. I love the delicate pink roses.

Your garden is thriving from that rain. I have to go out and water my few things that are not drought resistent every morning. As summer moves on and it gets hotter I will have to do so in the evening as well. OH, but I can't wait to post a picture of my hydrangea in another couple of weeks. One of my bushes has 14 buds. Can you believe that? I have never seen one so prolific. I am so excited.

Thanks for you comments on my 100 things. When I wrote it I think I felt excactly the way you described, like it was my life story in 100 sentences. It was actually fun to do. Glad you enjoyed it. Have a great week.

Your roses are fantastic! I can almost smell them through the internet. I discovered you at Becky's and have enjoyed looking around your blog.

I have always been interested in your country. However, the closest I have been able to get to seeing it up close and personal is both airports in London--layovers on a trip to Israel. I still have a trip to UK on my list of things to do.

I'll be back to visit your blog again.

Hi Barbara,
Your roses are so gorgeous! I love english roses. They look so much more alive. :)
Today will be a rainy day here and tomorrow is set to storms, I hope my plants don't suffer too much.
Take Care. x

Such gorgeous roses, flowers and shrubs Barbara! The good weather came back to us today after a couple of very rainy days. I hope you'll have sunny weather too so you can enjoy your gorgeous garden! Carol xox

Barbara, I can't help but be a little envious of all your rain. We've had less than an inch in over 3 months.

Your pictures of your flowers are gorgeous...Roses especially are dear to me. I have a mock orange but it isn't in bloom.
