We have a Queen Elizabeth Rose that once grew in the front yard and always got hit by Black Spot. It would bloom in spite of it but the plant looked unsightly and was moved far to the back of our garden in what we call The Wild Area. It continued to grow there and now stretches some 12 feet in the air but bloom it still does. My DH brought these in yesterday. I do hope all those buds will open eventually.
On Saturday we were very disappointed to go to those neighbourhood garage sales so advertised as Rain or Shine. Well, we had rain... but not one house participated. However on the way home we passed my favourite plant shop and I stopped to buy 2 nice mixed pots that were on sale for $5.98 each. I just plunk them into the pretty blue pots on the porch.
This oversized cup and saucer filled with Mint, Basil, and Thyme was given to me. Eventually the Mint will take over but for now its pretty.
A trip to the thrift store this morning yielded some treasures... a number of books from the Bargain area, and the child-sized quilt that they are lying on. I liked this side but the reverse is not much to my taste. Still, it cost only five dollars.
I've already found the perfect spot to put it on the porch. On the subject of the porch, I've been spending a lot of time out on the swing. I haven't been feeling very well. The headaches that I had earlier in the year have returned. Although she wants me to have a CT of my head to eliminate a tumour my doctor is quite sure that what I have is Chronic Migraine. Not what one wants to hear but I'm sure others have coped and so will I.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope the sun shone brightly and you had a great Tuesday!!
