Hello Gardening Friends… I thought it would be fun to do an all PINK post for you today. It has been a frustrating couple weeks for us here. My hubby had knee surgery and developed a DVT (blood clot) in his leg. He has been off work and recovering, with lots of trips to the doctors and tests. He has been in a lot of pain, but slowly getting stronger. It rarely happens with arthroscopic knee surgery, but just the luck….it did.
It has been so hot, I snuck out for a bit to shoot a few pictures…. Quickly…..(Pink Double KO Rose) I haven’t been gardening very much, just watering and pulling weeds when I can. I have been cleaning house and cooking a bunch…. and of course getting the girls ready to start school on Friday. August 13th is too early for school! This summer went too quick.
Can you believe I took this today? I have a bloom on my Magnolia! It is really a small plant and it bloomed for the first time this spring, and now… I think it is a Jane? It was one of the plants I got at the Garden Club sale for $2.00! Love that.
This has been a good week for the roses. (Coquette des Blanches) This one has bloomed almost all summer long. They are tiny, but so many at once.
And a few of the hollyhocks are still bright and pretty. This one is in the “Kitchen Garden.”
I think this one is called Pink Heart Single. They are looking a bit ragged. It will soon be time for me to get my wagon and do some major cleanup…. but will it ever cool down enough to do it???? Heat index of 115 degrees today…. actual temp is 97!
I have more pictures to share soon, and thanks for stopping by!
