The cats have been running around to the windows and watching the men on their ladders...the noisy sanders have been loud and I was on deck to provide refreshments (cookies) as a self proclaimed Hostess I do have a reputation to live up to!
Oops someone left a cedar shingle on the patio!
Today all is quiet and I can hear myself think...the dish washer is going through its cycles but I can still hear the birdsong outside my window and it is music to my ears!
This pretty purple plant is in a neighbours garden and the bees just love it.
When I walked by I could hear the buzzing and watched as perhaps 50 bees gathered pollen.
Further down the block these beautiful artichokes are growing right beside the sidewalk.
I'm tempted to ask for a sample...
Artichokes have such interesting and intricate details.
Our Humble Bungalow Garden is a riot of colour and the roses are in full bloom.
Our roses are really putting on a spectacular show.
They love the warm weather and the sunshine.
This pink rose is the climber Madame Gregoire Staechelin.
Joesph's Coat of Many Colours
The blooms are bright orange when they first open and then they get tinges of yellow on the edges of the petals as they fully open up.
Iceberg is a reliable and hardy climbing rose which rewards us with many pure white flowers.
The cats do not usually nap in the same place but we caught them in the act and I had to take a picture because I think they looked quite cozy. They are sleeping on top of our vintage English Pram!
You still have a day to bid on the Hermes scarf and Pyrrha necklace if you are interested...
all the details are in the previous post.
Well that's about it for now...
I must get out for my walk as it is a beautiful sunny morning.
