Awww Monday! August 3, 2020

How can it already be August?
Time is just flying by....
Here are some photos taken early this morning.

Our two roses keep producing
lovely flowers ....
And they smell so good too!

And here are the crocosmias that we 
planted last year...I just love their color!  

Our clematis is still producing
lots of blossoms.... 

And here's the deck that Russell was working
on last week! He finished it in less than a week!
He's amazing! 
Even with the Wuhan flu aka Covid-19
we have had a wonderful summer.
One can still enjoy friends and family
while being careful and taking care. 

Have a lovely day- every day!
Thanks Sandee!

  5. Kathe,

    I can't believe it's August already, either. The months have zipped by and yet it's felt slow at the same time. How can that be, I don't know but that's how it's played out in my head. I want so much for life to go back to normal. I know the virus is real but I still think the media has blown it out of proportion. Everything about it feels wrong. *sigh* Oh well...I won't think about the negativity of all of this mess and concentrate on fun stuff in my life like mewsic and art. :) Have an awwwwesome Monday, my friend!

  6. Beautiful blooms and I love the deck.

  7. It's gone so fast Kathe :-)

    Loved the flowere beautiful :-)

    Have a safetastic week 😷😷😷

  8. WOW you have a gorgeous garden! Wish I had a green thumb like you! Love the roses
