It’s been a typical…

August Bank Holiday weekend as it was dull and wet all day yesterday and the same so far today, although it looks like becoming better later, with some sunshine tomorrow. 

I’m mostly sofa flying reading an uncorrected proof copy of One Summer: America 1927 by Bill Bryson which was kindly sent to me to read and review.

The rose Pretty Lady has just started blooming again although it’s nowhere as prolific as the first time as seen here.

Pretty lady roses

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and have a good week!

    You might find Sunday a bit better for gardening. The day is improving here by the minute. I might even get a teensy bit of dead heading done…..of such thing is Autumn. XX

    Today is a little better than yesterday up here and they promise sunshine for Monday.
    Enjoy your sofa flying – how do you get to review great books like that one sounds to be?

    • Flighty says:

      Mo just dull yesterday, sunnier today.
      Thanks. I got this one through a retweet on Twitter. Most publishers do occasional giveaways and offers on their blogs as well.

    It’s feeling a little chilly here in the south west this morning. Could really do with some sun. Beautiful roses Flighty. I’m waiting for a second flush on my pink allotment rose.

    Such a shame that the weather hasn’t been up to much so far, though I can see the sun trying to break through here now. It was actually quite chilly yesterday. It sounds like you’ve got some good reading to go at though, that book sounds right up your street so I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it when you do your review. Your Pretty Lady rose is beautiful, such a delicate colour. Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday.

      Jo it was dry here yesterday, and today has been better still with some sunshine.
      I’ve always got books to read, and so far this one has been most enjoyable.
      Thanks, you too. xx

  5. Enjoy your bank holiday over there 🙂

    That sounds like a good read. Wellywoman got me into Bill Byson’s work and we now have all his books. I’ll be interested to read your review.

  7. Hot and humid up here, does that rose smell as beautiful as it looks?

  8. elaine says:

    It has been lovely here this afternoon but yesterday was dismal, muggy but dismal. That rose is perfection such a delicate colour.

    An aptly named rose, Flighty. Very pretty indeed. While you are having a wet ABH, our temps have gone back to standard Aug/Sept fare of low 90F.

    Pretty lady indeed….aptly named!

    Oh no….what a shame Flighty, we’ve had a stunning sunny Bank holiday here, a real Indian summer! Here’s hoping you get some rays soon.xxxx

    • Flighty says:

      Snowbird it sure is.
      Saturday was the only really grotty day, although it could have been sunnier Sunday and yesterday. After a dull start today has been nice and sunny. xx

    The book you are reading does sound interesting. Pretty Lady is such a lovely rose. We are having mixed weather here also, but it is quite pleasant. We were ready for some rain after a hot dry summer. It’s in the low 20C range here, so still enjoyable. A few more pot marigolds are opening 🙂

  12. Hannah says:

    Your rose certainly warrants it’s name!

    Pretty Lady never let’s you down. Is Bill Bryson still in the UK or is he back in New Hampshire? (I think he lives in New England, somewhere.)
