Today is warmer, sunny, clear, cloudless, and everything beautiful.
Last night's 5-hour Diocesan Council retreat/branding & marketing workshop was a triumph, thanks to our presenter. And to the generous, helpful souls who augmented our pizza party with salads, dessert, snacks, and beverages.
This is my catch-up day, locating those things that fell through the cracks this week or last and taking care of them.
Admittedly, if I had the physical strength for weeding the gardens, the stuff that fell in the cracks would stay there a bit longer.
Perennial of the Day: Pink Lupine
Rose of the Day: God only knows. Rather, only God knows.
It's a Mystery Rose, some sort of climber. Possibly an antique variety, because if I recall correctly it blooms only once, and early. It took years to establish itself. This promises to be the best blooming season yet. It's pink and ruffly, with a sweet, heady scent.
Identifying mystery roses is an exercise in madness. (I did succeed, once, so I know it can be done.)
I remind myself that I don't need to know its name or breeding to love it! Which I do.
