I was surprised to see this bloom yesterday afternoon. I had a photo of a sad looking bud but the rose did develop its petals into a good bloom.
The promise of cherry tomatoes is beyond the dream stage. This is the first batch of them that has started to turn color. I have a lot of branches of these so we should have some good tomatoes to eat.
I had promised to share a photo a day of this sunflower and I see that I mess up that sequence already as I didn't post one yesterday. I have not seen this flower follow the sun so far but maybe it will the more it matures.
While mowing the back part of the orchard I was surprised to see the William Baffin putting out one loan bloom. I am thinking that it may rebloom later on this fall. The vines sure are healthy this year and it has done so much better after I took out all the old dead stalks. The thorns on this rose can be ugly and rip you skin open easily.
I won't spend much time on the weather as it continues for three more days. Our cooling system keeps us with lower humidity but the house just can't get so cool with the heat staying around at night. As a kid in southern Iowa I remember we would have to get blankets and just lay outside in the yard. It would be still 80 degrees but the sun wasn't shining. It was more pleasant than the inside of an old house.
I discovered things about my visitors to my blog that made me pleasantly surprised. I don't have a lot of followers but it looks like at least a third of you do stop by to visit the post regularly. I don't know who you are but I will start to write and think of all of you as my audience. I may pretend some days that you are some person out in the boonies in a swamp or in the desert. It inspires me to write when I think of the people that I know are checking in regularly. I thank you all for stopping by today.
