Hello Again!

What a hot July it's been and have to say, it didn't do the garden many favours with many plants flowering and gone over in record time. At least the flowers were in general, relatively unspoiled. This is just one of the Peonies which opened and dropped within a very few days.

Have missed you all and thought I'd look in this evening. Perhaps I will find more time once the dreaded cold days of winter approach but so very busy in the garden amongst other things at present. Hope you are all well and thank you so much for the many lovely comments you left on my previous image.

A delicate pink, Ann. It's normally the rain that knocks our peonies back so quickly!

Peonies are so beautiful in general, and this is no exception. Lovely layers of petals and a beautiful colour.

I've also been gone for some time - nice to see you again Smile


(Our 38C+ degree weather is not conducive to much blooming or to much yardwork - I stay indoors and hug the air conditioner!)

Hello lovely lady wonderful to see you back even if it's just one day, i think we all missed you and your flowers and this image is really beautiful it shows what a lovely
summer we are all having. I must say even my little garden looks wonderful Ann, it must be hard work in this heat to keep a large garden looking nice what with all
the dead heading and watering that's all i seem to do in this heat it's funny how some flowers don't like the heat just like me. I haven't really left the house much because it's just too hot and it kills me so it must be doubly hard for you with a large garden, anyway look after your self and look in now again.
Regards Gary

HELLO!! So good to see you uploading again, Ann SmileSmile

And what a divine image to come back with. The light here is just so perfect for the delicateness of the flower's colour and petals.

Such a pity about the flowers' accelerated life cycle in the heat. At least they were unspoiled, like you said, and not damaged, ya?

Lots of sun here but short spells of heavy lightningy rain recently.

Hello again back to you Ann! Nice to see one of your lovely garden residents! Hope summer was good to you and you could enjoy the warmth and the summer colours in abundance.
Today was cool, only about 20C, but at the weekend we are back to over 30C. I just love it, although the garden is bare of blooming and the grass was brown. But only two cool days and some nice summer rain ... and first buds are showing again!
