I envisioned BIG and really bright roses like I grew when I was a kid. I don't know about these "Knock-Out" roses. They are puny and pretty scraggly. Course the heatwave didn't help. Guess I should be happy to have any blooming at all. Looks like I'll be sending away for the "Disneyland Rose" I want to grow. Now look at those babies!!

I told my mom we should just plant whatever we are going to put in my big tennis shoe planter just like this because that's realistically what they look like in my closet. Well, minus the pot of water. We had to drag it to the backyard the shoe is so heavy! Good to see it again. ;>

Apparently our latest night of thunder, lightning, rain and wind has brought another part of the house down. Wish it could keep the damage to the back of the house so people wouldn't have to see it, or at least wipe all 18 shutters of the face of the place. We would be able to file an insurance claim and get rid of the ugly green things. Oh the other hand, we should have an awesome haunted house come Halloween!

When I was a little girl I had countless doctors and nurses bags. You know those cheap ones you'd get at the grocery stores toy section? I'd dream of taking care of patients. Putting band-aids on all my willing family members, listening to their heart beats with my plastic instruments. Who knew I'd grow to get one of those bags. Only this one has tools in it. I wonder how many other handyman where flipflops, a lounging dress and ponytail to hang pictures? ;>

Yesterday about dusk I realized I hadn't watered the front yard plants. Then I realized quickly I had forgotten about the "bubble" on the recently purchased garden hose. Bursting a bubble proved it's not always depressing, sometimes it can be quite refreshing on a hot summer evening!
