Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Dogwood-day afternoon

I took myself and my camera out for a break after fighting the good fight with the computer. The sun is shining (in Western Oregon, in June, this is a remarkable event!) The dogwood is burgeoning bountifully. In fact, Dh had to clip a branch that was so weighted down with blooms that it had sagged into the path of my car as I entered and exited the driveway.

The hostas are happy and home to small arachnids who will, I hope grow to be large, bug-devouring mother-spiders!

Grow, baby spider, grow and prosper!

The oriental lillies are beginning their run and aren't they luscious in the sunlight? What rich, delicious saturated color!

I keep saying that roses grow like weeds around here. This rose has grown from a bit of root stock that was left behind when we moved a fancy tea rose. (Often, tea roses are grafted onto hardy rosa rugosa stock. ) This way, we get two roses for the price of one. I may try making rosepetal jam. (Thank you Norma!)

Today, GED at the jail.

    darnit, Roxie, more flower porn--and even if the husband were home, the children are in our bed, napping!

    Swoon - it's all so lush and green! Beautiful :) The rose petal jam sounds pretty amazing!

    All gorgeous, but oh, that lily! I have to love roses, of course - but lilies are definitely up there in the top ten. ;) (Wouldn't they ride us out of town on a rail if we didn't like roses?? Hee.)

    The lily looks vaguely carnivorous somehow, rather spiderlike perhaps. The roses... ah, the roses. I can smell them from here.

    Your flower photos are wonderful.

    Sniff! I do belive I have pollen on my nose (AGAIN!) from the lily!!

    And the pink of those roses!
