I am off to tend to my roses. My antiques english roses and my damask have been invaded by white flies...off to save them.
Have a great week end,

I love the little pool house...I'll just live in there!

We ordered ladybugs to take care of all the aphids we had...lacewings are great too and can take care of themselves better than the lady bugs. I was always rescuing ladybugs from spiders and ants...yes ants! The ants farm the aphids for the sweet juice they produce...needless to say the ants didn't like the ladybugs messing up their little 'business' at all!

Happy gardening!

That would definitely be a great place to spend the weekend!

My outdoor intruders right now are grass hoppers... I need to spread some Nolo bait...

I was just thinking the same thing today, how I miss our pool in our last home, especially as it heats up here. Even if I didn't dip in much I love to look at a pool. Thank you for your kind comments today. XO

Well I could do with that pool, right now. Amazingly, we are experiencing really high temperatures here in the U.K. We tend not to go in for swimming pools here but. I wish I had one at this very minute !! XXXX

Pam..
I am with you but I have to say that pool house with the lovely roof is calling my name too. I wonder what is inside? A studio would be at the top of my list or maybe a reading room...a winter room with a nice stone fireplace would be fab.

Many thanks for your very kind comment today...much appreciated:)

Given the heat, almost all pools look wonderful right now. However that is the perfect inspirational image I need for a client project. THANKS for posting.
