Different Kinds of Guests

Another gorgeous day in paradise.  The weather could NOT be better and we have a houseful of happy guests this week.  Some are here for the weekend, some are here for the week. All of them seem to be happy.  I know this because they are laughing 😆

The first guest this morning was a little bird taking a bath

Ok, maybe not a guest, but a really pretty mosaic pot made for me by my friend Joanne Bartley.

I finally planted the box under the kitchen window

A group of happy campers right below.

Good morning all…

A moth came to visit us at the office door

I thought you might want to see just how large this moth is

I must say, as I am sitting here typing this, I hear laughter all around me. There are different groups of people sitting outside of their cottages , having a nice time. I am sure that the unknown guest who gave the Wayfarer such a bad review on Trip Adviser.com for exactly that, would be very perturbed and unhappy to see this right about now…too bad.

Now you see him…

He made me laugh this morning –  Bobo the Squirrel.
He was playing a game of hide and seek on the kettcars  🙂

He knew that I was watching him. I could tell by the way he kept
looking over here and jumping around

Then a little nibble on the buffet of grass and off he went
into the neighbor’s yard and I had work to do…

Something’s eatin’ my Roses

Every May and June the pest a.k.a rose chafers come and munch on my roses and other assorted plants until there’s nothing left.

This is how it starts

and it works it’s way through a rosebush in less than a day.

Why did it take me so long to google them and find a supposed remedy?  The other day I was thinking of making a mixture of dish soap and water to spray all over the affected plants. Wouldn’t you know it, something along that line was suggested on the website I found today.
