It’s pouring here today. Humid, sticky… the house feels like it is this living, breathing organism that is going to come alive and sprout gills if it rains anymore. Don’t you hate that feeling? Luckily I slipped out last night before sunset to capture the beautiful gardens around our neighborhood. I came home with an acute case of rose envy. Some of the rose bushes in our neighborhood look like they’ve been around since before the beginning of time. Like they were just meant to be there. They are so vibrant and thriving. And the peonies….don’t even get me started on those!
