My World # 31

Rio Samba Rose, Fairfield Glade. May 11, 2009.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and Fishing Guy.  Last week there were 115 people sharing their worlds.  To see more of our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

Today my world has roses in bloom.  Betsy and I got back from our beach vacation late Sunday afternoon to find the rose above, Rio Samba, in bloom.  That gave us quite a surprise, as we weren’t expecting any of the roses to be blooming yet.  Needless to say, we’re not complaining!

We had a very nice time at the beach.  We were a little concerned when we got there because the weather forecast was calling for rain almost every day we would be there.  But fortunately they were quite wrong and we only had rain during two nights.  The weather was almost as good as the seafood we enjoyed every day!

Evidently the rain that was forecast for the beach came to Tennessee instead.  Our rain gauge showed that we got over six inches of rain while we were gone.  The grass is growing so much that it needs to be mowed and the weeds are growing like, well, weeds.  But at least we have a rose in bloom.

    And a beautiful rose it is, too. We’ve had lots of extra rain here in Michigan, too. But we need the rain after our dry summer last year. Sounds like you had a great time at the beach! Have fun catching up with the grass and weeks.
