The Beauty of Fall…

You know how I LOVE spring. And though I fight it a bit, I really can see the beauty of fall.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.  A time to plant and a time to harvest… Ecclesiastes 3

Bloom Thyme Friday: Beating the Heat

This is a week of record high temps (99 – 103), so I find myself extremely grateful for the plants that are “beating the heat.”

Just when I was about to panic about the lack of water and intense heat, David Strickland of Witherspoon Rose Culture, our guest on Blog Talk Radio today told the story of his roses going without water for 6 weeks last year and once the rains came–the roses came back too.

So presently we are beating the heat with iced tea, fighting the Japanese Beetles and waiting for rain … and watering as much as we can! As CWO (Chief Watering Officer) the garden hose is in my hand most days!)

These are the troopers beating the heat and taking the sunny center stage in our garden… Click on the first picture and the gallery feature will open so the pictures won’t look so tiny.
