It finally stopped raining today – I’ve never been so happy to see the sun.
Our hometown actually made the news for being flooded!
Anyway, my main concern was for my rose-bushes. I thought they weathered the whole thing pretty well, but when I went out there this evening things weren’t looking that good. Some of the leaves were curling in in a very unhealthy-looking manner. And one of the buds on my new Peace rose was drooping over on a very limp stem.
There also appears to be an infestation of spiders all of a sudden. The kind that kill roses! I’ll have to make a plan tomorrow. I wonder if it’s connected to the wet weather at all?
My Princess Margaret bush made a secret bud underneath the foliage, right at the bottom of the bush. It is now blooming and is just the most stunning pink rose. I wish I had new batteries for our camera so I could take a photo of it!
Tomorrow Michael is going to attend the MPH show at the dome in Jozie, so I’ll be home alone. For a change. lol. Except I won’t be really, will I? I’ll have my little bear with me 😉
