    I hope you’re still alive.

    Is it Summer Down Under? Are you on the beach? How are your roses this year?

    Love you. 😉


  4. Hey Sis 😀 ♥

    Microsoft was my favourite. with Plug ‘n pray 🙂

    Yep it certainly is Summer Down Under! Parts of my country have been having severe heat waves (actually that is nothing unusual – in the north of my State we hold the all time record for consecutive days over 100 of your degrees – almost ten months, or over 300 consecutive days! But fortunately only a billion flies, some Kangaroos and a few mad Aussies with the occasional tourist spends much time up there!

    But Adelaide, a city in South Australia of a million plus has had 6 consecutive days of ’40 degree plus’ weather – that’s Aussie degrees which 40 equates to 104 degs F. They peaked around 113 !!!

    It’s not that bad here (yet – February is traditionally one of the hottest months) but i don’t spend much time at the beach unless it is early morning or around sunset. You know how we redheads can get sunburn. 😉

    I planted a new white climbing rose on Australia Day ( Jan 26) – it’s a baby right now with a few flowers but i’m hoping it’s going to make a great display in Springtime as it’s paired with a bright red climber. Hopefuly i’ll have some good photos to post.


  5. Hey! You did respond.

    Your summers sound like Texas. Well, actually a bit worse. We’ll hover around 98-105 for most of July and August. One summer I was working at Taco Bell during a heat wave and the air conditioning went out. It was 108 in the kitchen and I had a double shift!

    Sunset on the beach…heaven!

    I look forward to your Spring then, seems you’re due for some amazing photos. My daffodils should be blooming soon — with the grape hyacinths alongside, it’s beginning to feel like Spring!

    ♥ ♥ ♥


  6. Daffodils are my Mum’s favourite flower – we plant several each Autumn but owing to the conditions here only a few end up actually flowering in Spring. ( the winter’s are not cool enough i think) We had a couple of Grape Hyacinths grow this year too! (and beautiful blue bearded Iris but our best success was with a whole bunch of ranunculus)

    So how about a pic or two of your garden on your blog one day?? 🙂
