Gertrude...

Today I wanted to share a photo I took yesterday of my gorgeous Gertrude Jekyll rose just beginning to bloom... as I stated previously, we are about a month behind our normal gardening schedule this year due to the severe winter weather we had and lack of much of a Spring... the bush is full of buds now though and I cannot wait for them all to open!...


I was hoping to post more flowers that are also beginning to bloom, but I had another kidney stone several days ago and am a little under the weather myself... but, I also wanted to join Tracie at Fishtail Cottage today for Cottage Flora Thursdays, so this is a short post... hope you enjoy my beautiful rose!... wishing you all a blissful Summers day... xoxo... Julie Marie

It's beautiful sweet friend... But the pic of your Tess (with the rose) took my breath away. She is sooo lovely and I adore her.

Your box is on it's way, finally. Sorry for the delay... Tough week!

The rose is stunning, Julie Marie. I know how exciting it is to wait for blooms...I have several plants ready to burst!!

I'm so sorry about your kidney stone. I have heard how painful they are. Hope you are recovering well. Take care.

XO,

I don't know if I've ever seen a rose as beautiful as this one. I am loving the picture of Tessy in her hat!! She has a real sweet look on her face and I'd love to know what she was thinking. Gracie sends Tessy hugs and says to tell her (about the hat) 'Better you than me'. lol.
