In fact, I have roses everywhere. My bushes are tall but they are absolutely covered with gorgeous blooms.
I have so many blooms that I am wondering why I have been cutting those roses back. Hmmmmmm, what is the deal?
Maybe I am being rewarded for such a terrible year last year. I definitely lost a lot of plants last year. You can't believe the pile of trees, bushes, and branches that I have sent to the dump to be chipped up for the local mulch pile.
After a year like last year, it really makes any blooms this year seem that much more precious. We are getting a bit more rain but we still need much more to get our water wells back to normal. We are still rationing water. The wind hasn't helped things. We don't usually have a lot of wind but last year and now again this year we are having quite a lot of it. It really does bruise some of my blooms and it really zaps the plants and causes them to dry out quicker. This doesn't help when we are rationing water.
Despite the little brown bruises from the wind, I am still thrilled with their beautiful blooms.
We have temperatures of 100 predicted today (groan) I sure hope that wind isn't going to bring us heat like last year. I haven't bought so many plants this year because I want to be sure I can care for them properly first. If it comes to watering plants and drinking water then drinking will win. If Texas crosses your mind this year, please say a little prayer for us. We sure could use them.
We sure would appreciate your prayers too.
If enough of us pray together, who knows maybe it will begin to rain more and cool our state down this summer.
Until Next Time
