Spring Snapshots

We're having school holidays this week and next and visitors will come and visit and stay with us next week, so you can imagine it's going to be very busy but exciting time for us. I've also been painting some walls, Can you guess which walls in my house I've been painting? Will show you photos in the next post. I took some snapshots here and there while I'm waiting for the second coat of paint to dry. Some rosebuds have started to become flowers, it's that time of the year again!! We've been having lots of rain this last week and the aphids have been horrors, I can't spray them while it rains, so squishing them is my only good option, they are bad this year! I've killed so many that every time I shut my eyes, I see images of aphids!! Urg! Eek! Never mind, I think my perseverance might win yet! Have a dandy day, my lovely blogland pals, don't let those aphids scare you! Drop me a line if you haven't so I can come and visit you too. Note: To those of you who asked me if I have a name for the rose above - Yes, I do! It's called "Perfumed Perfection" and it's a Floribunda rose.

so beautiful, your flowers are to die for! Ours are just starting to wither away as it's autumn. I am so glad I "found" you today, I'll be back to sit in your garden and smell the roses.:)

I was just tending my roses today and noticed those yucky aphids on lots of my new rose buds. I have to take care of them hopefully in the next day or two. We were suppose to have rain here but didn't. Have a great week in the busy-ness of it all. Wendy

Beautiful flowers! Such gorgeous shades of lavender.

Sorry the aphids are so bad for you this year. Hate those little buggers.
