When I started Plum Bird Corner, my goal was to make it a delightful place to visit. I wanted to fill it with beautiful color. While on a walk yesterday I took the above photo of this Cape Plumbago. I think these blue flowers certainly fit the description of beautiful color. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
My pink miniature rose is blooming. I love miniature roses. They give off a lot of color in a small area. In my last post I showed you my orange miniature rose. See it here.

Then I may really have a problem deciding. Maybe they are all my favorite.

Today was a day spent catching up on projects left undone while we were on vacation. I found these beautiful roses blooming in the back yard, picked them and brought them inside to enjoy.

My last big challenge was to give Annika a bath. She always knows what I am planning and makes herself scarce when she sees me with the dog shampoo and towels. Once in the tub she is fairly co-operative. Here is a photo of her taken after she was dried off and brushed. Not quite as perfect as the groomer would do, but she looks much cleaner than at the end of our camping trip. She is sleeping at my feet as I write this, so I think she has finally forgiven me.
