things tending towards normal

The contract passed --75/25%. I wonder how many people actually read the thing. I sat in front of someone who did not even read the "cliff's notes" version before coming to the meeting. And this person has how many degrees and used to be a union officer?

So today I went shopping, I hate shopping but I needed to restock my pantry which was pretty low as I have been eating out of freezer & pantry that last little bit. Now I am restocked and am in the process of putting stuff away. Everything done but can goods. I needed a break so I went out took a few pictures before we have more rain and it messes up things.

First a panorama of the back yard. The Hansa rose is in the left background and is nearly as tall as the Japanese maple! It is supposed to be 4-6 foot tall but mine is 12-15 feet tall. Happy plant with monster thorns.



EtA: the Dame's Rocket (Hesperis matronalis) is a weed but it doesn't get weeded out until it stops blooming. It is a pretty weed.

A lot of the roses are in bloom. Some close ups, in order: Reine de Violette, a rosa rubifolia, rosa rugosa (Hansa) and a Buck rose, Square Dancer.









The red oriental poppies got beat up by the rain, but here they are.



And a couple of others...
