It's July already! Over half way through the year and of course onto the seventh post in the fabulous Picture Perfect Project too!
In case you don't know, the picture perfect project is a fun link up which encourages bloggers to take more photos, improve our photography skills and of course this enables us to improve the look of our blogs. Did I mention how much fun it is?
I've been loving this link up! When I decided to join in with this project, I thought I would try to chart a year in the life of our garden and hopefully be able to share some beautiful images with you along the way. Not that I'm claiming any credit for anything beautiful honeys, I'm still learning how to use my camera so any beauty it captures is purely down to mother nature :) It has to be said though that even a less than perfect photo of a rose is still beautiful :)
Do you remember the rose bush we planted in memory of my dear Mother in Law honeys? Every year we would send two dozen roses to my sweet MiL, on her birthday and again on Mother's day. She loved roses as much as I do. Well, in the fourth months or so since it was planted Mum's rose bush has grown and look what's happened now honeys...
Even seeing this photo again makes me smile! I really didn't think we'd have roses this year, so I get ridiculously excited each time I open our front door and look out into our tiny front garden and see Mum's roses starting to smile at me :)
The other rose bush, sitting alongside Mum's, is the one we planted in memory of my dear Gramma and just look at Gramma's roses smiling...
There is something about raindrops on a rose honeys...
Here they are...
This is what's left of those treasured and dearly tended cuttings...
I'll have to carefully snip off one of the shoots since it is discoloured and has died. This is the one Hubby picked out of the lavender pot! He found it and popped it back into the planter, bless him. So, what savaged my much loved cuttings? Hubby thinks it might have been magpies. We do have a lot of them around here. Whatever caused the damage, it's deflated me terribly. Hopefully if I care for it the surviving cuttings will grow again.
There you have it then, honeys. All of the fun (and drama) from our gardens this month :) I can't wait to see what everyone else has posted for July! Are you taking part in the picture perfect project? If so, do leave me a link so I can go read your post?
