Rose and Peony Parade

More peonies to love and admire. My mother's are not fully in bloom yet but I will be pilfering some from there as well. Mine are almost finished.

This is Earth Song. What a heavenly shaped rose. Such a pretty colour as well.

John Cabot is doing his bit. It was so windy I was unable to get a really nice photo. I am sure there will be more to come.

William Baffin looking every so charming. He is a very hard worker and loves where he is living. Morning sun and later afternoon sun seems to be his preference. There are hundreds (thousands?) of buds, just waiting to open.

We are still waiting for the Fairy and my Celeste. Soon.

My summer is really shaping up to be a busy one. I have enrolled the youngest in a camp for two weeks and hopefully a soccer camp later in the summer. We will be away up north for a week or two with my mum and dad, which we do every year. I am also suppose to be going away again with some friends for a weekend shopping in the US and will also be making some trips down there for University trips for DN2. We also have 8-10 home visits lined up with the US universities that wish to come see my daughter at home. This will be taking up much of July.
Again, not sure where all this "time" is suppose to materialise from.
Also, I just made up another batch of the laundry powder. It really lasted quite a long time and am ever so pleased with it. Have you tried it yet?
PS Thank you so very much for your lovely comments on my flowers and the new header. As always, you make my day (week, month...)

It's been so nice to see all the lovely varieties of peonies and roses. My poor flowers were beaten into the ground with all the rain.

Your summer does indeed sound busy. Hope that you and the family have lots of fun planned and enjoy every minute.

Hi Lisa,
Thank you for popping into my wendy-house and leaving a message. I'm thrilled to be able to return the favour as your blog is so pretty.
I also adore my garden and of course my beautiful old tea roses that were here at the cottage when we moved in.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
Take care,
Wx
