Our beautiful sunny weather has ended and today is showery and much cooler.
The last few days have been very warm by Seattle standards and I have spent my time watering and staying cool in the shade.
This is my favorite place to wait out the heat of the day!
But not until I make sure all of my flowers and plants are well watered and happy.
My Japanese Maple enjoys this shady little corner.
But wait, what is that hiding under the shade of the tree?
Let's take a closer look........
Ling Ling knows how to keep cool!
O.k. we will let you go back to your nap, Ling Ling!
And what are you doing to keep cool, Maggie?
Oh, I'm resting in the shade beneath this hummingbird feeder.
What? I'm just keeping them company!
My pansies curiously watch, as I give everything a nice cool drink.
The Fuschia are not happy in this heat, so I keep them well watered.
These are Hummingbird favorites.
Like ballerina's in beautiful tutu's!
You can never have enough!
So many different varieties.
The roses are putting on a show, too!
Each one more beautiful than the next.
All with their own unique scent.
Lavender to keep them company.
The breeze carries the lovely perfume.
Delicate beauty to celebrate the loveliest time of year.
Can you have too many roses?
Beware the thorns!
