Summer Time's Here

I'm so happy the weekend is here, and all my reports are done. I feel like the holidays are on their way. This flower is a little how I feel, but it is still just so beautiful.

These cactus flowers have been so long lasting and I grew this plant from just a tiny bit from mother-in-law. This has been it's best year. My budgie is no trouble!The bees are LOVING my poppies...
My neighbour was tossing out this rose in the winter time and hadn't been pruned for years. I cut it all back and gave it a lovely home with compost all around and look at my reward. Not sure what her name is, but I call her Frank as Frank is my neighbour who gave her to me.

Below is Penelope...
...and this is my very special newest poppy Papava Oriental ... I want to get some more of these.
I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend.
