Last week, it was all about the strawberries.
While they are still growing and ripening, this week's story seems to be all about the "Double Delight" tea rose.
I was delighted to discover three blooms had opened just in time for my birthday. I cut myself a little "happy birthday to me" bouquet and have been enjoying them on the kitchen counter all week.
I think that the organic fertilizer I applied back here worked like a charm. I've never had such huge blooms and I've never had so many blooms. Delightful!!
When I went out to take pictures of the roses, I couldn't help but notice the first peony of the season.
This truly is a delightful time to be in the garden.
