Normally since it's Tea Cup Tuesday I wouldn't post anything else but I just had to share this. Yesterday was an unusually wet day here in "Sunny California" (we aren't living up to our name this year for sure). I look forward to the first bloom of my roses in the spring every year. It's always the prettiest before our summer heat has a chance to fry them all. :( After taking my dog to the groomer this morning I thought I would go see how water logged everything was. YIKES! I should have taken a before picture of my beautiful Sexy Rexy rose tree. Every stem just loaded with roses was hanging from all the weight of the water. Can't believe none of them were broken. As much as I hated to I decided to cut them ALL (yes all) off. This is what I ended up with. The flowers are so wet I can't bring them inside and put them on the furniture yet so I had to take the picture outside. As you can see from the picture I didn't need any filler flowers!
