The weather has been very hot and so watering has been a top priority.
With water restrictions in place, there are certain times one is permitted to use a sprinkler and the rest must be done by hand.
This has allowed me to wander about and take time to observe all the plants.
Roses love water and this white Iceberg climber is in full flush so I do not want to let it go dry.
If you look closely you can see the new obelisks beyond the iceberg rose.
These were required to help support the 4 new David Austin roses that we purchased this Spring.
Claire Austin is a fragrant white rose with climbing tendencies and the multiple blooms on each stem are heavy so she needs a little help.
All four settled into their new spots.
We finished in time to sit for a bit on the deck.
A glass of bubbly for the Hostess
and a single malt Islay scotch for Mr. HB.
Who BTW painted the obelisks most of the afternoon in the hot sun.
Thank you darling!
We joined friends this weekend for a delicious BBQ dinner and sat on this gorgeous porch with expansive ocean views.
I also went to historic Point Ellice House and wandered in the garden and perused the new Secret Vintage Shoppe.
I'm working on a post to share the photos I took while I was there...
so please stay tuned and you can see what I found in the shoppe!
In the meantime
it is laundry day and have a bunch of ironing to do.
How is your week going so far?
