A Rosey Treat!

I treated myself to a shrub rose. My first and only one. Right now it's cute and small but I'm expecting it to fill out quickly.

It's called Palmengarten Frankfurt. A pretty bright pink. Because of rainy weather, I caught it's first bloom a little late, but it's still so pretty. And the little buds are a promise of things to come!

I just love how the raindrops bead on Lady's Mantel! The rain was a little heavy and knocked over the blossoms, but the splash of bright green is still gorgeous in the garden.

Happy, warm summer days to all!
