Our World Tuesday: green and pink

Our weather was unusually wet this spring, and the humidity is continuing into summer, with thunderstorms in the forecast, even though they don't always materialize. Not exactly the usual desert conditions here on the prairie.
 
The rains bring beauty, however, such as my Explorer Rose, which is now in full bloom, while the currant bush by the birdbath is bearing fruit, and I haven't had to do any watering at all so far.

Oh Wow! That is just so awesome, Kay! I love that beautiful shade of pink. I'm wondering if the scent is as beautiful as the flower.

I guess we have to look on the bright (or maybe wet) side. At least my unattended garden didn't dry out during the week we were away. That a nice pink rose. - Margy

Same here, Kay, and guess what, it's raining again. Raining and humid. I was going out to garden today, nothing doing. Poor Benno is panting in fear, there must be a thunderstorm in the air.

He also has hayfever now, How is Lindy?

What a beautiful bloom, Kay. And your currant bush looks very healthy! Hope you're surviving the muggy weather. Hugs Jo

75 spams a day, You won't want to be around me when I go beep beep beep, why di people do that. I don't mind the verification, what is a little beep, when I like you. I am traveling, and I need your advice, Howto adapt from the middle of winter to a hot tropical island. I am here at 3 .15 am reading your blog. and this is the third morning.

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Ann — I wish I could offer you some useful advice but I can't imagine adapting from the middle of winter to a hot tropical island. I used to travel from Canada in winter to northwestern Mexico to visit my parents when they lived there, but I always stopped in southern California first, to rent a car, so I adapted gradually, and the northern Baja Peninsula in January or February was really neither hot nor tropical.
I'm afraid I don't do well in tropical climates. I melt. I really do...great puddles of perspiration all over me and my clothes.
Wishing you well in the tropics, however.
