Foggy Flowers on Friday, and an Invitation

It's raining today.  It also rained yesterday ... and the day before.  It's supposed to rain tomorrow, too.  I'm okay with it, because the roses love the rain (and saturated soil will make for easier weed pulling next week.)

Before the rain started on Wednesday, Ruby and I went for a walk through the garden to see what was blooming.  It was overcast and a bit foggy, and I am really pleased with what this did for my photos.  I hope you like them, too.









I forgot to mention here that I am having a pot luck Garden Social next Saturday, October 19th, from 2:00 to 5:00.  I am excited to show everyone the improvements in the garden (fewer weeds, more roses, and my new garden along the fence behind the greenhouse.)  If you would like to come, please send me an email so I know ahead of time who's going to be here.  Plan to bring a dish to share, and a rose (or other plant) to trade.  (It's okay if you don't have anything to trade ... there will certainly be enough extra plants so no one goes home empty handed.)

I love a good garden party!!  I hope you can come.


  1. Oh, I so wish I could come to your party! Sounds wonderful. Love your photos today -- I find a sunless day is best for photos as well.

    Have a super weekend!

  2. Dang. I am close enough to show, but am hosting a family event at our place. Would have been a great opportunity to smell the roses.

  3. Wonderful foggy roses! If I lived on your half of the county I'd come to your party! Sounds fabulous!!!

  4. Who sang 'Garden Party'? Ricky Nelson??

  5. Wish I could be there!

    That first rose photo is FANTASTIC!!!

  6. Belle Vichyssoise looks like a fabulous Noisette. Great color, it must make quite a statement when it opens all of that potential "wow factor" I see in the photo.

  7. Beautiful photos of all unknown, except Compassion, roses to me. I should like to come to your Garden Social next week, haha, should be a very expensive afternoon trip.
    We have rain too, actually it is raining cats and dogs for the second day after another now, and don't forget the wind, autumn has really started.

  8. Compassion is gorgeous, and Setzer's Noisette makes the top of my list as well. Have a lovely garden party, if I were nearby I would join you!!
