Hello people! Hope you're all having a nice week so far.
We had a little hail storm blow through here the other day. Luckily, It blew out of here as quickly as
it blew in.. We also got some much needed rain, as it was starting to dry up in the garden. The
next day, however, the sun came out pleasant as could be, and the birds were singing their melodious
songs -- it was so peaceful. We have rain coming again this weekend, which is a good thing, because
we don't want to have to start watering the garden this early in the season. ;-)
If there is one thing in the garden that I get most excited about, I would have to say it's my roses. I
love them! They start blooming in mid Spring and don't stop until late Fall, providing me with
countless bouquets throughout the growing season. These pictures are just a few I've taken for
various posts last year since I started my blog last May.

I purchased most of the roses in my garden (and all of the roses in this post) from the David Austin
Rose Catalog. You can find more information about David Austin Roses here.
After seeing this picture (below), I realized how glad I was that I painted my dining table top white.:)
