My Lovely Roses

Followed by a Heatwave at 30c that’s the Hottest here in the West Country I can remember having lived here for the past 12 years. This time last year everyone was complaining about all the rain we were getting. Set to be much the same next Week , has been a Lazy Day and doing nothing comes easy with this Heat.
Well that’s my excuse … around about 7pm the Evening Blackbird’s seem to appear all in various parts of the Lawn.
The Woodpecker appears to have had a chick to , isn’t that simply Lovely. Got a little glimpse of him/her a few day’s ago.
Which made my Day as it’s a first for me. ..bye for now ..

  4. Hi Sheila, beautiful blood red rose you have captured there, my favourite flower.
    It must be great to see woodpeckers, we dont have them here in Australia, only time I see them is on the Woody Woodpecker cartoon show, hehe.

    True Sheila we complain abt the rain and now we have sun.
    but its Always extreme this or that.
    We like rain but why do we use umbrella when it rains.
    Enjoy while she shines Sheila and stay in shadow cos she burns like hell here

      Hi MJ it has been a really Hot couple of weeks so I am been extra careful. oh yes rain is due quite soon I think the garden is looking really dry now. Take care Sheila x

  7. Hi Shelia what a beautiful Rose… and Phew! yes its been HOT HOT! hasn’t it.. But I am not complaining,,, We have waited a long while for a Summer like this one.. And all that Rain last year!….The garden is so much better this year.. as we got so many crops ruined with rotting in the rain…This year even though we have had to carry Bucket loads to keep the allotments watered. well worth all the effort…
