Cherries are finally on the market! I lost both cherry trees in my garden to some sort of disease, now I have to buy at the market. But that is OK. They are delicious.
I don’t know the name of this rose,but it is a lovely soft yellow climbing rose and overflowing with blooms in June. I love yellows and oranges in summer with a lot of white and accents of blue. Isn’t nature perfect in its inspration?

Also known as torch lily or red poker, I grew up in south Africa knowing them as ‘vuurpyle’. We had them in the garden and every summer they flowered in abundance. I have them in my garden now as well, a little reminder of my South African roots.
