Questa sera

Was it Shel who asked if these smelled as roses ought? Yes, they do, but evening is not the time to sniff them. Warmth and humidity bring out the aroma. Alas, when I photograph the bush the roses look a brownish pink. I adjusted the color to look like what my eyes see. Who you gonna believe, a photograph or my lying eyes?

The trumpet vine seems very happy this year. Summer has not officially started and it is blooming away.

I did not have the camera in hand when I went out to water the yard and the sky was in a thousand shades of lemon but here is tonight's sky after watering.

Why I live here.

How do you water the sky????

Paul said...

With the most amazing fire hose, Susankay. I can barely control it. (Silly.)
