Roses and Milkweed Silk and Seeds

We will still have lots of cold weather: these are pictures of roses after the hard freeze, and milkweed silk and seeds ready to scatter to produce new milkweed plants for the monarch butterflies. I need to cut the red roses back, but every time I think they’ve lost their flowers enough to do so, I see a whole new crop of buds getting ready to open.

Spring is on its way! Some day. But truly, I’m enjoying the cold for a little while longer!

I had grand plans to finish editing 3 books yesterday. Well, I finished two, made the changes, and uploaded them again for final proofs. Three are available for sale. One more is waiting on final proof. Five are waiting for me to make changes. And today, baby will be here. Soooooo… I will be lucky if I can finish the book I started yesterday.

But still, that’s steady progress. I spoke to my editor yesterday, and she said that the acquisitions’ board meets on Thursday, so we’ll see after that if the next 3 books sold. They’re for 2019. This years’ titles are already written.

Off to get ready for baby and try to proof Dragon Fae today. 🙂 Hope your spring is on its way too!

When I think of roses, I think of romance, weddings, anniversaries, love.

What do you think of?

I got word count! Over it. Still working on edits and then will be finishing the book. Still haven’t written a couple of must have scenes and the climax and end. 🙂 <3 But also listening to the audiobook for Huntress for Hire. Worked on another 3 hours of it. Have another 3 and a half hours to listen to and proof.

Off to work! Have a super great Monday! It’s a misty rain this morning, lots of lightning. Great vampire writing day. Which, Huntress for Hire is, so maybe I should work on it first??? 🙂 Sunny days are for werewolves. 🙂

Everything’s Coming Up Roses

A few days ago, I posted about the yellow roses that have appeared.

But a couple of days ago, my Knock-out roses began to bloom.

We have heat, humidity, drought, drenching rains, heavy black clay soil, so not the perfect climate for a lot of plants. My mother had Blaze red roses that were beautiful against the white brick, but they were subject to black mildew and black spot and so my dad finally removed them all. It was sad, but they put in a lot of crepe myrtles that blossom all summer and are mildew and black spot resistant.

Then I found the roses at one of the home supply and garden centers that were purportedly resistant to all the stuff that plagued the Blaze. So a couple of years ago, I planted the one and it was so successful, the flowers blooming nearly every month of the year without any hassle, no fungacide, no bug spray, no special fertilizers, that I was won over. They’re Knock-out roses, beautiful, and at least for now, seem perfect for here. I even over-water a bit because two of them are by a cypress tree and lots of jasmine cover, so I need to water some during our awful droughts. But they don’t seem to mind.

It’s good to keep a color scheme that is more uniform, which makes it more showy. And red really stand out. But when I went to get some red, they were sold out. The pink were beautiful, so I picked up one of those that first year, then the next year planted another pink in that same area and a red in another area.

So for my mom and dad, they are a memorial to their hard work at trying to make the roses viable.

Back to working on A SEAL Wolf for Sale!

Ever been to a Honey-Do Auction? Bachelor Auction?

Some of those paying are really high rollers!

Have a great Saturday!
