I wanted to also thank so many of you who reached out about Ashley's story and sent prayers for good results of my biopsy after my post last week. The results were not what I had hoped for - the biopsy showed the tumor to be Stage IIa Spindle Cell Melanoma. The next step is to get in next week to see a specialist and schedule another surgery to remove more tissue where my tumor was removed and have my lymph nodes checked under my left arm. I will let you know how that goes. Just trying to keep good thoughts and keep my moments of panic and overwhelming thoughts of "what if" to a minimum! I found this quote on Pinterest recently and put it on my phone to remind myself to stay positive!
Okay so onto this weeks garden and flowers here at Fishtail Cottage! Our temperatures have persisted to stay in the 80's here in Seattle. Which means watering is a constant task and the progress of the landscape seems to be moving at faster pace than in years past. The front of the house has continued to stay gorgeous with the changing colors of the Strawberry Vanilla Hydrangeas. They are showing all three colors at once.
A few cheerful blooms that are loving this heat is the Stella de Oro Daylilly, Malibu Yellow Poker Plant and Arum italicum 'Marmoratum'.
Also, Guara, Prairie Mallow Knautia Thunder and Lightning and French Perfume Rose.
I finally have identified a couple of my roses through you! I am still hoping someone can help identify this rose - here are three different stages of its color. The blooms have lasted for weeks and weeks - starting out in a pinky orange color and then fade to white. Any thoughts?
Thanks for coming over and taking a look at my garden post for the week xoxo, tracie
