David Austin Rose
Fragrant frilly and frothy petalled rose in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
How is your summer going?
Ours has been a hot one with no rain.
We are staying hydrated by drinking lots of homemade lemonade
reading in the shade of the front porch in the afternoon.
Trying to get our garden chores done early in the morning
while keeping up with the watering.

These bloom every summer
they always catch my eye when I walk down the street.

deep cupped blooms
The sweet peas are growing vigorously this summer.
I cut them each day and the next time I go out there are more flowers!
It must be because of the heat and constant sunshine that we are experiencing.
Angel's Fishing Wand
We have two clumps of this planted in our front garden.
The hummingbirds like them!

I almost swoon when I see these blooms.
The limelight hydrangeas are brightening up The Humble Bungalow Garden.
Their chartreuse shade GLOWS!
I finally found this in a local nursery after hunting for it for well over a year!
It felt like winning the plant lottery...
I must have been in the right place at the right time.
I discovered a new mystery series by Canadian writer Steven Burrows.
"The Birder Murder Series"
which is set in the UK.
A memorable group of characters and a murder with birds featured in the story.
Steven Burrows is an experienced "birder" and has written for many birding magazines.
This book is the second one in the series...
A Siege of Bitterns is the first book.
I am planning to read it as soon as I finish this one.
There are 4 more books
something to look forward to!
Hope that you are keeping well.
Our Covid cases have spiked again...
The delta variant seems to be spreading quickly.
We have had both our vaccinations but are not taking any chances.
Masks indoors and avoiding close contacts.
