Roses And Tansy And Mallow Oh My!

Look what I discovered 
along the fence line!
If you remember a couple of months ago
it looked like THIS-
A little later it looked like this~
So-God smiled down and this is what happened~
A little ray of sunshine to make me smile.
Next to it is Tansy.
White as it blooms and yellow as it matures,
Kinda like my hair only in the reverse!
Mellow Mallow
Speaking of MALLOW
Remember the Mallow Man?

I like him so much I found a T-Shirt with him on it..
I was thinking of wearing 
it around.

Just kidding!
Imagine ME in THAT shirt-
Marshmallow woman?
That would make some eyes roll!;>)

Have a happy, sappy day.
I'll be around late today...
We are moving and shaking
as we pack up Ruthie's house!
She has called me several names
under her breath but I pretend
not to hear her because I know
She loves me.
Tomorrow I will show you 
some progress in the packing.

ps....This is what 98 degrees
looks like over the bay.
Can you see the haze across
the way?
It is HOT, baby....HOT!
Kinda like MyHero was 40 years ago.
Shhhh-he still thinks he is pretty hot stuff.
your photo name


Musings from Kim K. said...

Gorgeous yellow bloom. Stay cool. I understand the weather is going to break today. Storms are rolling across the great lakes later. It's windy this morning. We haven't had any wind this week.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Pretty flowers. 98? Wow, you are hotter than we are in the south.

Preppy Empty Nester said...

So funny! Love the shirt. Stay cool this weekend!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful rose, Diana! I'm so glad it came back for you. My view of that bay would be me in the bay with this heat! : ) In the 90's all week with a "feel like" temp of 100. I can't stand it! It is supposed to break Saturday with rain and thunderstorms so Sunday should be nice.

Melanie said...

The flowers are lovely! Love the shirt! Have great weekend!!

Try to enjoy the heat Diana. We've had so much rain and now are starting to get storms and we've lost the power 2 times in the last 2 days. Beautiful roses!

Sonny G said...

I love the mallow plant. hope I can find some to plant in my area

I'm smiling that your pretty roses grew and bloomed..

Susie said...

Diana, Your flowers are shaping up. Mine are showing signs of too much heat, even though I have tried to stay on top of the watering. There is no way I would wear that shirt ....well maybe to sleep in.LOL xoxo, Susie

Jettie said...

Oh go ahead and wear that shirt, I dare you!
I promise all you'll get is lots of comments on it, nothing about looking like a marshmellow. Well, except from me.

tlcukjourney said...

Diana you're so crazy sometimes I love it!! I think you would look adorable in that marshmallow shirt:) and all men think they are hot...Right up until they turn 95! (I'm again reminded of speedos)... oh and gorgeous gorgeous photo of the lake!
Have a great weekend you gorgeous lady!

Julie Marie said...

Your flowers turned out so pretty Diana... it is hot hot here too... 100+ degrees each day and 104 predicted for tomorrow... wish I lived on that beautiful lake like you do!... guess I'll just have to run through our sprinklers to keep cool... xoxo Julie Marie

Pam Kessler said...

Oh, I've seen that wedding photo. Your hubby was hot back then! I hear the weather is going to break this weekend. Not soon enough for me, because I can't even get out to garage sales in this stuff!

Stephanie said...

Oh what a glorious yellow rose :) Your rose bush is doing so well! Enjoy your weekend.


Tete said...

Yeah, well 40 years ago, I was 10. Got a small breeze this morning and we have rain coming in tomorrow to cool things off a bit. Looks like that here, too.
Oh, you should wear the tee.
Love that your rose made it! Yippee!

This N That said...

Lovely flowers..We may be getting some much needed rain tomorrow and hopefully some cooler temps with it..

Sunny Simple Life said...

The water still looks so beautiful but boy sorry about the heat. Hope it breaks soon. Do you get out and swim out there much?

Junkchiccottage said...

That shot of the water is so pretty. It is miserable here too. Another hot humid day. Hopefully a cool down this week end. Hope you get a cool down too.

Anne said...

We will be visiting your beautiful State tomorrow.Taking a trip to the Dells :-) .And soon a trip to Door County.I was hoping to have a girls day out with my daughter in Lake Geneva but it's wayyy too hot.Maybe next week.
Wow your roses are beautiful!I planted lots of those in my yard this year.Planning on planting many more.So nice to run out to the garden and cut fresh flowers for our home :-)

Kelly said...

You always have me laughing! What a fantastic view! Even in the sweltering heat, it is beautiful. Love you pretty yellow flowers. I have never had yellow roses before. They sure are pretty. My roses never bloom in the summer for some reason. They do best in early Spring and then fizzle out. Maybe it gets too hot for them. Not sure. Have fun finishing up with Ruthie's place. I know she is very lucky to have your help!

Unknown said...

I knew it!!! I knew those roses would come back! So, YAY!!! And I love your 98 degrees over the bay way more than our 98 degrees without the bay!!! Happy weekend my friend!

Debbiedoos said...

Gorgeous flower finding, don't you love when that happens. It sure is hot there wow..we have not even gotten in the 90's here this summer in S. Carolina.

Chatty Crone said...

It is hot here in GA! I love that T-shirt (I kind of am built like that.) And I love what a ray of sunshine from God can do - it is amazing isn't it? Thank you again. sandie

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Beautiful rose and flowers. The view across the lade is stunning.
You are so funnyyyyyyyyyyy. you make my day. don't kill yourself in this heat.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Diana, Beautiful blooms and the yellow rose is so bright.
Never saw the mallow man but I feel like he looks when it gets so HOT here and you swell up from the heat. LOL
Got to just be in the pool. Even the gorgeous pic of your bay looks HOT.
Have fun helping Ruthie and take some heat breaks!

Hugs and Happy Weekend,
Celestina Marie

An Oasis in the Desert said...

Beautiful flowers! We are at 101* with 22% humidity, so it only feels like 99* -- yeah, that makes me feel!

Lucille said...

Ohhhhh, Diana! Poor "MyHero"! You crack me up!

Little Miss Maggie said...

Fabulous view and what an idyllic setting. Stay cool.

Leena Milligan Lanteigne said...

I would show you what over 100 looks like here, but it melted LOL! I'd be swimming in that bay! Hugs, Leena

Merlesworld said...

Sew a Fine Seam said...

RURAL said...

Ah you never cease to make me chuckle when I read your posts...

Now try to stay cool if you can.


Laura said...

Oh diana, i looove that haze when its hot and summery!!! we get that here and its one of the summer joys that when I see it, for the first time of the season, gets me a lil excited!! Thats when I know summer has really started!! sorry I havent visited much this week; my uncle and aunt are here from england and although they were staying with my mum; all was not well! so my hubby and i had to step up and make sure they had a nice time. Mum playing up again; just to ensure that my life doesnt get too easy!!! but i do plan to catch up for sure; but for now seb is moaning about being hungry/ no, starving in fact.. looks like he is about to fade away to nothing!!! so i better go feed him!!!
love and hugs! laura xxxx

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh Diana,
Look at this yellow rose - how beautiful is that? It must have made you smile BIG. I don't remember the Mallow Man - he looks a lot like the Pillsbury Doughboy though haha.


cindy said...

HOw beautiful! My dad did a bouquet of 48 yellow roses at my mama's for every year of their marriage, and one red rose in the middle....her maiden name was 'Rose', and he always called her that. :)

And I'm happy to know you will NOT be adorning yourself with the marshmallow man shirt!

Ricki Treleaven said...

*NICE* your roses are coming back. And I love that t-shirt. I want one.
