Perfection

How I love flowers. At my neighbors house taking care of her cat and plants and she had one beautiful rose in bloom. With our cooler weather I think it is helping the flowers bloom instead of die before they open.
Darlene, this is such a perfectly lovely peach-colored rose. Don't see that too often. Hope you are doing well. It's been a very long and hot summer here and very dry the past month. Hope you've had some rain.

@congaree John, thank you so very much. I love the color too and was surprised to see it. I am doing ok. It has pushed me to take care of her aging cat and her plants. She has a beautiful backyard. I sure feel for you as we have had the heat of the Summer but now in the 80's to 90 and next weekend will be 82 degrees. Totally unheard of this time of the year. We have had no rain in too long. Everything is so dry and water comes from what we use to water our yards. Hope to get back up to the mountains soon and see how it is there. Fires have been devastating especially in areas where many people have built homes and many have lost homes this way. I hope you get rain soon. We are not likely to until October but at this rate we stay hopeful and grateful too. It is so nice to hear from you. I hope you are doing well too.

@grammyn You are such a sweetheart, Katy. Wish I could have captured it more in detail but used what I had with me. You bring tears to my eyes. Thank you for the fav and what you said too. I hope you are doing well. My life must have been meant to be somewhat hectic but I deal with it.

Simply stunning colors. Taken with your Sony? While a pain to use, it does lead to great images.

Taken with my cell phone. Still having focus problems with my Sony. Use my cell a lot and Sony when out to actually take photos or on a day trip. I think this would have been crisper with my Sony. Should actually use both to take photos and compare.

Oh so pretty. love this exquisite color. beautifully taken and a fav. for me. read your reply to John about the weather and how you feel. this has been the hottest summer I can think of for so many weeks with high temperatures and often high humidity. I don't know how you can stand over 100 degrees. is it at least dry heat or do you also get high humidity. not so with the little rain you have, I think.
how is your weather usually lets say in January/February?

@bruni Thank you so much, Bruni for the fav and comments. Ian so sorry that your weather has been so hot like John's weather as well. My cousin lives in Texas and it was 119 with humidity at the hottest. I cannot imagine. It was hot getting up to 108. We were melting. It is pretty dry heat when it is hot here but there are days with some humidity as well. We sure did not get the rain we needed and hope to get a lot this coming Fall, Winter and Spring. We get fog in the early months of the year but not always. It actually has been known to warm a bit too. We do not get endless days of rain ever which we could actually use. So many of the beautiful trees in the mountains are dead and so they work a bit at a time removing them but it is impossible. So many love to live where it is forest like and pay the price when fires hit. We used to get to about 20 degrees C but recent years it only gets to 30 unlike your snow and then melting of it. I hope the hot weather ends for you. I always thought of Canada as a colder than normal area to live. How our climate has changed over time. Hope you and Hans are doing well.
