HEADER INFORMATION

The Header Picture was taken in October of 2016 and shows the CHIMNEYS area (all decorated for Autumn) of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. This was BEFORE the horrible WILDFIRES which began here in November and destroyed SO much.

July ROSES in our Yard 2016

Lots of blooms (including some Day Lilies) ---taken 7/13/16
Today I'll share some of the MANY different varieties and colors of ROSES blooming in our yard --just THIS month...Even with the heat, humidity,  lack of rain --and Japanese Beetles (YES--we struggle with them here in Summer)-----our roses still manage to put on a wonderful show for us...

Hope you enjoy seeing these beauties... As I say on Facebook most every single day,  I wish YOU could be here to see and smell the roses yourself...We are truly blessed.

Hope you enjoyed seeing some of our ROSES.   It has been a good year for Roses --despite the problems with the beetles and of course,  our DEER.   I have more to share --but that will be in another upcoming post.

Today (July 18, 2016) is my eldest son's 53rd birthday.....  Happy Birthday to Bert!!!! How can "I" have a son THAT old????.. WELL---that bundle of joy came into my life when I was 20.  I felt like a child myself then --raising a child.  Thank Goodness for Dr. Spock's Baby Book back then!!!!! ha ha

Have a wonderful week, my Friends!!!

Hugs,
