On my way home from my walk I stopped to admire a rose bush loaded with yellow roses!!
I hadn't met the neighbour that was puttering nearby but she came over and we chatted. She said since I liked her roses and she was getting ready to go away for a few days maybe I'd like her to cut me a few, which she so kindly did. She included more roses from other bushes so I had a lovely bouquet.
Once home I saw that my Morning Glories are starting to open. These grew from seeds I gathered last year. So far I see 2 different colours but there were more so we'll see.
Something that made me a little sad was that we had to dig out and destroy an entire bed of Daylilies that were once again infested with the Gall Midge which deforms the buds by laying eggs in the buds. In spite of my efforts to cut off all the affected buds last year and the year before the damage was done and I suppose that area won't be having Daylilies in it any more. I do still have other beds where so far I don't see any deformed buds. I'm not sure just how far this pest has spread.
It's a lovely warm day here in B.C. and I have lots to do. I just came in to cool off and maybe have a cuppa before I go out and get more things done.
I hope you're having a lovely day, GM
