I have for you, Jewels right from my gardens this morning. I hope you all enjoy the beauty you are about to see. There are a few Jewels that I have not seen in a long time, and there are more budding right now, which yes, I took photos of, but have not included in this post. One you are about to see, I have not seen in TWO years. Due to the changed weather patterns and insects not behaving as I am used to, I will have to change my strategy next year on how to protect my Roses better. *scratching head* For you that you do not garden or grow Roses, this is really challenging to do. Trying to figure out how to overcome weather and insects in ways I am not used to … takes some real thought!
Now on to the show! I deliberately identified the following images as Jewels. When you view them, you will understand! ENJOY!!!
First up, is Tahitian Sunset (Darn! if I didn’t spell Her name wrong on the image!) whom I have NOT seen in TWO years. As it is plain to see, She has really struggled.
Next is Mauvelous who I believe flowered in early Spring and then stopped, again due to voracious aphids. She again right now, is showing Her colors.
Then I have Moondance, which I know flowered in early Spring but She was severely shocked from deer eating her. *sigh* She is once again beginning to flower. The one after Her is Crimson Bouquet which has been flowering and has been seen here before, but I couldn’t resist another image. She is velvet and trying to capture Her texture is vexing me. You have no idea how many times I have tried. IF I had a smartphone camera, NO problem, piece of cake. I’m always up for a challenge! (GRIN) The third photo is called Lovestruck, another Rose I have shown, yet again I had to show you again, this time from a different perspective.
The next one I have shown months ago, but She was not healthy at the time. Now She is. Look and see. (smile) Her name is Love. I asked myself why is Her name Love? Is there not two sides to Love when you really get to know someone?
And last but not least, is Tee Tee. He is the reincarnation of my cat Tigger who just was so attached to me, he immediately returned. Now for those of you who don’t believe in reincarnation, just think of it as a Soul who decided to return to me in a different form because he Loved me so much. He is one of the outdoor cats who lives in the barn next door, but you can find him more (in the warm seasons) hanging out in our backyard or asleep on the back stairs. Here is my Tee Tee. And yes, this photo was taken with my macro lens. Pretty amazing!
I hope you enjoyed my post, and made your day a little brighter for it. May all of you have Peace this day, and Happiness in your Hearts. Love, Amy
PS I don’t plan on being online much today. I was going to take the day off, but my Heart guided me to do this post. Have a Great Day!!!
