Saturday stories

The Peony Poppies opened this morning.
The Moon Glow Coreopsis hedge will bloom now until September.
It is food for the bees and the butterflies.
It is deer resistant.
My husband watched a Doe this morning walk into the garden.
She looked at the green beans and went on.
The white apothecary roses are in full bloom.
These are the roses I use for my syrups and rose water.
The little chick-a-dees were out this morning.
They were with the Nuthatches and Tufted Titmice.

It is partly cloudy today.

The white apothecary roses. They are old-fashioned roses, yes? Which my husband loves to grow.

This one is named an Apothecary Rose? How nice. He's been a pharmacist and corner drug store owner, for years. It's now run by our son, but Dad still works some evenings.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
This rose is named Apothecary rose. It is a very old variety. It has the scent and the beauty.
How interesting your husband is a pharmacist. Having a family business is nice. Being able to pass the store down to your son is a grand tribute to you and your husband.
