Screaming Neon Red Rose

As I mentioned last week, we just planted a few new roses in a newly landscaped area in our backyard. This new area is now complete. We ended up planting this one along with the Oscar Peterson Rose, and they complement each other perfectly.

May Wrap-up 2021 #Books #BookReviews #MayWrapUp #Music

Seriously, I can’t believe it’s June already! May went so fast for me. It wasn’t a super productive month as far as reading due to all the outdoor work and planting that needed to be done. We also had a wonderful reunion with a good friend of the family and his little daughter. We hadn’t seen them in over a year due to the pandemic. The kids were like in another world. I’ve also spent a little more time streaming and watching true crime videos on YouTube. That can take up a considerable amount of time if you let it.

So, now that all of our planting is complete, I’m hopeful I’ll be able to get more reads in for June. I’ve also decided to slow down on my NetGalley reads because I’ve requested too many at once. Reading a handful of books with late publication dates always slows down posts for the blog because I just went back to requesting ARCs a few months ago. I’d like to keep my ARCs manageable so I don’t have too many deadlines. It stresses me out to have too many waiting, and right now I have five NG reads on my list.

So, let’s see how May turned out!

In May I only reviewed 4 books; one was for Shabby Sunday, but I did have a few other reviews on Goodreads for books that will post this week. I’ll include those for June, which will likely be a much more productive month.

Fortunately, The Milk by Neil Gaiman

Among The Beasts & Briars by Ashley Poston

Red Rover by Christopher Krovatin

Oscar Peterson Rose

We just planted a few new roses in a newly landscaped area in our backyard. This new area is now complete, except for a few little staining projects to finish on the deck. The weather has cooled down, and it’s raining, which is such a blessing. It’s been a rough week.

We have a handful of Knock Out roses, but this new rose is something else.

Begonias Boliviensis

This is a new hanging basket for me. I’ve had begonias before, but never like this.
