Fall hydrangea petals

It’s raining now, but thought you’d like to see the hydrangeas looking good in the sunlight not too long ago.

Roses before the storm

They predicted a big rainstorm so I went and picked most of the open roses that looked good. It’s raining hard now!

Fall color trees

Gotta love the colors of autumn.

Hailstorm

We were in Issaquah, WA, finishing up dinner after a day selling jewelry at Salmon Days, and the sky just opened. I have never seen a such hailstorm (with lightning! thunder!). The roar of the hail and rain, an inch of hail on the ground, and rivers of water and ice because the leaves and hail clogged all the drains. Expect the unexpected, I guess.

Lyndhurst Mansion

Visited the Gothic Revival Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, NY, on the Hudson River. Naturally, I was particularly interested in the rose garden. Just this once, I am including FOUR photos in this post.
