This spray rose from Japan is called "Eclair". Almost good enough to eat. Japan has an amazing selection of very high quality floral varieties.

Big cat

This cat is one good mouse catcher. Although now I think he is napping
in the sun.

Hosta time.

Do not ask my why, okay I will tell you why I love hostas.
My grandmothers garden path was lined with them and it reminds me of
her and the simpler times in her little garden.

They can get upto 10' tall in there natural habitat.

weather that they would be ready for the big day.
