No sunset, no moon, I couldn’t check on the owls. Rain, much needed rain, kept me inside to post photos of roses. The first Dr. Huey in the above photo. Julie’s giant Dr. Huey is only thinking about blooming. After it blooms we will have our 7th annual Dr. Huey tour.
Fourth of July with a Grasshopperlette.
I posted this one last week when it only had 5 roses in bloom.
Bazzoka’s first beavers. It was dark so they are not super clear. the one on the right looks like a bear.
Bazooka’s first swallow. Swallow are faster and more erratic flyers than bats.

Gorgeous roses! Glad you got some rain.
That red climber is spectacular!
I got a fair amount of rain up here, too. We needed a day like this.
I’m glad you are getting rain Timothy. These roses are so beautiful , I adore rose trees , probably more than rose bushes. The Veil of roses cover the wood fence is just beyond words. Thank you fir sharing these beauties.
So beautiful, all these different roses!
Thanks, Heidi. We and around 300 rose bushes several years ago. Many late freezes over the years has decimated our rose garden. My last count was 135 rose bushes are still thriving.
At first, it seems all very much like an experiment, then nature makes the choices.
Lovely colors. o vibrant.
Wonderful collection of roses in your garden ! Our roses will open in a week or so, I think.
Aww… a flower post!
My, the fence roses are gorgeous!
Yay for the first bazooka beavers and sparrow!!!
Happy Wednesday, my friend!
Thanks, Marina. The beavers should start showing up in better light.
The roses are gorgeous. It’ll be fun watching the beavers. We’ve been seeing Chimney Swifts at altitudes the last couple of days. Wish they’d drop down to our yard and do some insect sweeping!
Thanks, Maj & Sher. The swallow as so fast it’s amazing.
Beautiful! The red roses on the fence is my favorite… ❤️
Thanks, Nancy. I been watching that of develop into a really cool spray.
By the way… send some rain to us… we need it!
Good to see Dr. Huey and the parade of roses! Enjoyed the beavers and swallow, too.
38 degrees here this morning with gathering clouds. It’s going to be a cool one.
Thanks, Lavinia. That’s rather cool. It’s been in the mid 40s in the mornings here this week.
Well done on the roses. Interesting that there are so many types of roses as I haven’t noticed those types here. Cheers to the varieties!
Thanks, Frank. Rosaians are comming up with new varieties all the time.
Tim – you have an extraordinary rose garden. WOW!
Tim, the roses are stunning. The fragrance of so many must be incredible. Sometimes I smell the few just outside my front door, and it’s wonderful. I’m glad there was rain. We didn’t get any down here, but it was nice that the humidity wasn’t in the single digits. Hugs on the wing.
Thanks, Teagan. The rain was nice. Sunny and warm again today.
Yay for rain!!! 🌧☂ Love all your roses, Tim, for some reason we do not have a single rose bush in our yard, that has to change! 🌹
So many singers and groups have sung about rain, it’s a beautiful “music” to express emotions. Or to show roses…
That is so true. Thanks, Flo.
Gorgeous roses! That lovely “sash” is to die for!
Sasha is a really sweet and she has super soft hair. Thanks, Dale.
Be careful not to pull a muscle with photographing those swallows! Decrease the fstop (1/f or however you think about adding depth), find a lot of light and pray.
That photo was made after sunset. Already dark. They are quick. Thanks, Brian.
I’m greatly enjoying your roses in the wet series, Tim. Speechless I am.
Thanks, Mary Jo.
Really enjoyed these, Sir.
Ow how exciting .. my rose is thinking about blooming! And it’s raining, more excitement! Wish I lived closer .. Wonderful photos Tim 🙂
Thanks, Julie. We are worlds away.
