It's time for blue again

After all the pinkness lately it's time for another blue post today! The heat wave still surrounds us, we've had no rain since 6 weeks now I guess and I'm not looking forward to my water invoice this year.

I've took this last picture in mums garden:

Nothing but roses

Hopefully I don't bore you too much with my rose photos, but having a very hot and sunny summer this year (the whole opposite of the very wet summer we've had last year) I have never had more beautiful roses (I have 15 different sorts growing in my little garden at the moment) and I just can't get enough of them:

Isn't the "Eden rose 85" a real stunner? When I look at it I always think it looks so yummy I would want to eat it lol

My pink Monarda is finally blooming and the bees are in love with it:

The pink mallow is also still blooming:

And another hydrangea in my front yard:
