In God's Playground

 It was such a beautiful autumn morning today.  There is so much to do in our garden right now, so I got out into God's playground and it did my soul a whole heap of good.  Seeing as the house in such a state right now, it was nice to get out into the garden and lose myself for a couple of hours.

As my friends know, I have to be a little bit careful not to overdo it, or my fibromyalgia will strike me down.

I took a few photos of my miniature roses.  I lost one of my pink ones during the dry spell, but since the recent rains many plants in the garden that I had given up for dead have sprung back to life.

This pink miniature above is in topiary form and is giving a lovely display.  I will take a full photo in better light.  The sunlight was just too powerful this morning.


This orange one was all but dead and is struggling along with a few little flowers to please me.

I brought some roses inside to brighten up the space.

I also planted some basil and parsely seedlings.  It is probably the wrong time of year, but hoping to get some use out of them before our first frost hits.

Di, your roses are beautiful they must smell divine.

Perhaps the pleasure from them will calm your headaches.
