When I leave the house during the day, whether through the front door or the back one, I stick my nose into a rose blossom. On the deck, a pot of Secret roses, seen above, blooms. The leaves are looking a little chewed up by insects and I'll have to tackle that. I grow my plants organically, and we are prone to black spot here, so I settle for less than perfect.
In the front yard, this nameless rose bush, present when we moved here 11 years ago, has survived a couple of transfers to new spots and continues to bloom prolifically. Fragrance is important to me when choosing roses. Their sweet scent delights me.

Today's plans include a physio appointment, tutoring, and time with Little Miss A. There's definitely some enjoyment planned, and we'll see about the improvement. How are you spending this mid-June day?
