Flowery Friday

Summer is hitting Planet Georgia with both barrels… as I’ve said before, the weather here has attitude. But it’s not stopping the flowers…

A tall pink rose in front of the manor, across the driveway.

A little ways behind it, among the trees, a hydrangea alerts us to its presence with a big bright splash of blue.


I presume both of these plants have deep roots; we’ve had no more than a couple spits of rain in the last couple of weeks, despite 40%–60% chances of rain on several occasions. Smaller trees are starting to show signs of stress, but these flowers (and my tomato plants) are doing well.


  1. To say that we have been inundated with rain would be understating the amount that has fallen. It has rained almost every day, and sometimes multiple times a day, for more than 3 weeks. You are welcome to some of ours, just send a large bucket, or spare tanker.

  2. I'll commandeer a couple of feed trucks; I think they'll hold water!


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
