Counting Plums and Roses

Such beautiful weather brings out our roses in the garden.

Unfortunately its been so hot they aren't lasting.

The plum tree on the other hand is doing really well. One of us "not me", counts the plums .....really he does....... except this year there are too many to worry about.

O.k. I used to count the roses I'll admit it..................

Beautiful! What will you make/do with the plums when they're ripe?

Wishing you some rain to break up the hot weather a little so the flowers will last!

Aw, thanks Karen

How could you really not want the beautiful weather not to last. The garden really needs some water though.

looking forward to browsing through your pages. great photos, we are thinking of turning one of our gardens into a rose garden. the only problem is that i seem to kill anything that we plant. we must have had the only non fruiting passionfruit in the world.
enjoy the sun

Flowers make me smile. There is nothing like a blooming flower to help remind me of the little things that we take for granted every day.

I'm with Bunny - what do you do with ripe plums? Is it the same thing I can do with ripe lemons? I have waaay too many lemons right now.

eat them, freeze some, eat some more, make a few pies, eat some more plums, make jam (jelly) eat just a few more plums, then feel really sick!

Your garden looks beautiful.
Its rained so much on ours that everything that the wind and the frost didn't kill, rotted away ..I do need to sort it.

Thanks Jackie. We love the Soggibottom garden. It's never the same from month to month.It changes and seeds all by itself sometimes. Will show you at the end of the season what it is like when I have to hack my way through it just to find the garden table and chairs.I can always find Frank the cat as long as I have food in my hand, he finds me.
