I have had company for the last week. My SIL and her sister were visiting from Colorado and California. They are both avid gardeners so I had planned outings to the Loose Park Rose Garden and Powell Gardens. If you visit Kansas City both of these are must see places if you love gardens. However, the weather had other plans. It rained all the time they were here.
We did make a couple of excursions to garden centers. It was very interesting to my SIL's trunk loaded full with plants on their way to Colorado. And the rain continues today.
So now I have plants sitting in cardboard boxes waiting for the rain to cease.
My red climbing roses have braved the rain and burst into bloom despite no sunshine.
Isn't it a shame this rose only blooms once a year? Each spring I wait anxiously for it's yearly display.
I did get a couple of pots planted and with the all the rain they caught hold nicely. They are calling for rain again tomorrow. Oh please, just a couple of days of sunshine is all I ask.
