This & That Thursday


Last night the rains started and we had a thunderstorm so I was told by Papa , I must of been tired as I slept right through it and that for me is very unusual !

The rains have let off for now but more are to come  and the winds have picked up to. The sun is trying it’s best and peeking out hope it wins . This morning I decided to tackle the house cleaning and get all that done as tomorrow is to be nice and sunny and we all know how weeds grow in the rains and my gardens need a good weeding so that’s what tomorrow will bring for me !

Everything is so green and lush now from all the rains we have had and the blooms are coming along nicely .

Spring 2013 (1 of 7)

One of my Clematis plants has this pretty bloom on it with more ready to pop ! I have another one that is huge but a bit slower in blooming but she has lots of buds also ready to pop !

Spring 2013 (4 of 7)

My Knock out rose bush is just filled with buds and each one seems to bloom one a day , I cant wait till they have all bloomed and just fill the bush with prettiness ! Still waiting for Papa’s rose bush to bloom she seems a bit slow this year !

It is a rainy day here so garden time is limited to between the showers. Your rose photo is lovely. There are lots of buds on my climbing rose, perhaps some are open. I'll check on my next little outings.

Another great post full of pretty pictures, loved them all. Your header of Miggy is a real sweet one.
I love Ontario you know. Before this last visit I went on a family 'convoy' and drove all the way along the border until we reached North Dakota, where we met up with about 300 of hubby's relatives for a reunion. That was in 2002, it was a great trip.

Whenever we get back up that way I shall be sure to let you know. Same here, if ever you decide to head south.

Wishing you a great day,

I wish my roses would bloom like yours do...

We seem to get hot, sun, rain, cold, they don't know what to do with themselves.

I also love the bright vibrant colors against the green and raindrops--Makes the rain kind of nice to have, doesn't it? :-)

Rain is a beautiful thing especially with no many in need of it.

Great shots. I love Clematis AND roses AND Migs so I guess this post was just for me.

That dog of your is gorgeous. Mind you the flowers come a close second. Remember the saying, never work with animals or children!1 Have a great weekend. Margaret

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's
simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and appearance. I must say that you've done a great job
with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.

Outstanding Blog!
