Early this morning I went out and sprayed all of our roses with a mix of water, Ivory & baking soda to help with blackspot and pests. Every morning, there is something new blooming and every evening there is something that wasn't blooming in the morning. This evening, our first Four O'Clock bloom showed it's precious face! I knew it was getting ready and actually was surprised that is was one of our White Four O'Clocks that were blooming first. The white ones are more delicate. I usually expect the Fushcia's or Yellows to bloom first. The white and the pink ones are not as hardy. So, it was a pleasant surprise as Four O'Clocks are one of my very favorite's and was my Daddy's favorite also. I took a couple of pictures tonight to post them on here. Bruce & I also planted seeds tonight in the Baby's garden. We planted some Pink Rosa Cleome, a Pink Cosmos mix, White Four O'clocks and Pink Four O'clock's also. We also planted some White ones in the "White Garden" (imagine that!) The weather has been just beautiful. It's not too humid and hot yet and the mosquitos haven't been as bad the past week. They were really bad the first couple weeks of Spring.
