Rainy Day Ramblings

Its raining, its poring, my husband is snoring.
Really, he is and I am stuck inside.
Here is the spider that was up in the corner near my computer desk. Pretty scary, don't you think? He relocated to a rosebush.
Rainy days always cause me to daydream. Today I am dreaming of roses I want to grow. The roses in these pictures are from the Earth-Kind Rose Trial at the Texas Agrilife Extension office in Kaufman on highway 34. If you live around here, do yourself a favor and check it out. The roses look awesome. They are not fertilized or sprayed. The variety above is Julia Childs. I don't own a yellow rose and must have this one.
This one is Bright Melody. I think it is a buck rose, but I need to verify that.

Finally, Rainbow Knockout. Hopefully, this Knockout will perform as well as the other varieties.
Now I am off to finish my scarf for the Scarf Initiative organized by Kathryn of Plant Whatever Brings You Joy. Do you think I should put fringe on the scarf?

  1. My talents don't go as far as fringes - though the one Kathryn showed on her blog with a fringe did look lovely.

    Thanks for thinking about offering your monkeys to help with my allotment. That darn pesky pond between us eh! I nearly borrowed one of you Labels when I posted - I thought 'I'm a wimp' was most appropriate in the circumstances ;)

  2. Oops - for you, please read your

  3. Hi vp, your scarf looks great just like it is. Feel free to borrow any of my tags. I didn't even notice the typo until you pointed it out.

  4. The birthday cake thing .. priceless ! .. the spider .. I can NOT believe how big and scary THAT was .. I'll be having nightmares tonight .. thanks girl ! haha

  5. Hi Joy, Figured you would appreciate that spider. Great for halloween.

  6. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Spider!!!!!!! Our indoor spirders seem to be black-and-red (not, mercifully, as in black widows, though). they're still damned scary. And then there was that time I found the giant wolf spider in the bathroom. AAAAHHHHH!!!!---Silence

  7. Oh no, Poor Silence, sit down and take a deep breath. I did not mean to cause a panic. It is going to be okay, the spider has been moved far away from us.
