Stuff on Saturday....

 The old fashion rose lost all of its blooms as the wind blew and a light sprinkle helped to wash them all away. One lone bud is ready to be the first to open.

While young this shrub got mowed off accidentally. Itt now has revived and is becoming a great look shrub with its red blooms just now opening. 

The hardy geranium is not fairing so well in the heat. This group of flowers have stayed tough but all in all the rest of the blooms are gone. 

A new knock out rose didn't look like it survived the winter. It was all dead. I tried to pull it out but it was too hard to pull out by hand.  Then all of a sudden it started to sprout new leaves and I was suprised by one bloom. It really is determined to survive even though the most of it has dead parts. 

I have it finally solved.  This is a primrose flower.  My wife found out on the net that the four petal flowers are primrose.  The five petal flowers are buttercups. 

I have a lot of photos of my white clematis.  I have to hug the wall with the camera to get a good shot. It is tending to turn its flowers towards the fence. We had a sprinkle of rain yesterday. It was not measurable but the deck did get wet for a short period of time.  We will not be so hot today but it still is a warm summer day.  Its a good day for the neighbor to build his new deck next to his pool. I hope all are well today.  Thanks for stopping in today.

Thanks to Della for identifying the primrose. I am glad the roses and the geranium are hanging on and determined. We had thunder today but no rain and we do need it.

Warming up again around here just in the 80's for a few days...then who knows probably back in the oven again. The plants all need lots of water!
