A Jewel Among the Jewels

To beat the heat we were having dinner on our patio when our flamboyant guest arrived.

He landed on our outdoor chandelier and commenced washing his face--a very tidy guest at that. I managed to get this photo of him with my camera phone.

Happy Canada Day!

My new (and first) red rose, Cuthbert Grant, opened this morning before it started to pour outside.

This photo (taken, edited & posted with my phone) doesn't really capture the gorgeous cherry red velvet of the rose, however, it does give you some idea of the shape.

Now that the rain has briefly stopped it's back to gardening for this girl! xo
