the slippery slope

This summer our garden has flourished.
The roses are disease free. . .

. .and the limelight hydrangea is daily begging to be worthy of a vase.

Tell me the truth. .
if you were to come home from town and observe this in your backyard. . .
what would your assessment be?

He had a perfectly reasonable explanation ..
he really did.

all for now. .


  1. The determination on his face! It's wasps, moths or a raccoon!
    The word verification is 'herocome' which is quite appropriate, as I'm sure your husband is doing something heroic!

  2. Hmmm...he washes the trees? I'll be back to find the answer later!

    Is the limelight hydrangea a new addition to your garden? It is still my favorite...making the best cut flowers for months! I started a cutting for Broni and she is loving hers this year as well.

  3. Your late summer garden is gorgeous!
    The last time we saw a guy hosing down a tree was because his yard had been teepee'd. Does that kind of prank happen up in Canada, and if so, what did you two do to deserve it?

  4. I have no idea. That is one thing I have not seen in our yard. He's been accused of sweeping the lawn, but never washing the tree...yet.

  5. I think he may be spraying tent caterpillars. Dairymary

  6. Hmmm . . . it's a mystery!

    Your roses and hydrangeas are gorgeous!

  7. I'm with Pondside on this...

  8. something must not be disease free......your roses are AMAZING!

  9. I don't get this one...but he is known to be focused on a project...we will wait for the outcome.
