Back again for August's installment of the Picture Perfect Project, the wonderful link up designed to encourage bloggers to take more photos, work on their photography skills and make their blogs even more beautiful.
During a recent lovely, warm afternoon I had decided to do some tidying up in our tiny front garden. There is a rosebush, one of the first planted after we moved in, which had become very overgrown and was starting to creep over the garden fence out into the street!
This rose bush hadn't grown any roses for the past two years or so and I thought maybe if I pruned it back of all of the over grown branches, it might blossom again. So, on went my gardening gloves and an apron, and our furbaby Jade & I went out into the garden. I never go anywhere without my assistant after all :)
I snipped away, one branch at a time, while Jade settled down on the grass and went for a nap, content that Mum wasn't going anywhere :) Can you imagine my delight dear ones when, after cutting the out of control rosebush back so that it stayed inside our garden, I found this...
What a perfect treasure and such a joy to find!
The mixture of sunshine and (lots of) rain has also been very good for the rose bush I planted in memory of my beloved Gramma too...
I managed to catch one of Gramma's roses in the rain and decided it was so pretty I wanted to make a printable version of it. It looks like this honeys...
