Summer with roses and fox gloves

In the small communal garden - the roses are popping and the gentliest of breeze is carrying it's dusky pink fragrance.

I took a few cuttings for my frulli glass vase - welcome in:

 And an update on my foxglove - growing nice and tall:

 Have a great week!


  1. Those roses are such a gorgeous color--and they're huge!

  2. Gorgeous! I'm jealous, I have nothing like that in my yard. :(

  3. The roses are so pretty, those pale pinks are so soothing. : )

  4. I get very carried away with roses - they are just so pretty and don't seem to take much tending to (I've never seen anyone take care of them).

    The limits of my balcony are seen in the foxglove photos (it's more of a glorified window box) - everything is in pots, but I like any little outdoor space. I am currently taking care of my sister's french lavender (on the right) because it turned anaemic with all the flowers turning white - what happened?
