Dead Roses & Veseys Reaction/Action

OK .. I might have lured you in with my post title .. but I have a few amazing cloud and moon shots from Wednesday night that knocked my socks off .. my hurried pictures will never do the experience justice .. it was an amazing sky that I absolutely fell in love with for those moment.
As you can see .. this is the moon .. very tiny, and tinier as you see the other picture below..but I wanted to let you see that it is actually the moon and not a UFO ? wink wink
These are southeastern shots as the sun was setting in the west .. the cloud colour ran from opalescent to shades of warm gold .. to darker wispy clouds .. so many colours and to have the moon in the background was icing on the cake!
I had to show this one because it reminded me of teddy bear ears .. too darn cute right ? LOL
I wanted to show the umbrella and part of the gutters so you could get a sense of where I was shooting in the sky ... and how huge the clouds were with the tiny moon shining away : )
OK .. now for the news on the dead roses and Veseys .. NO problem at all !! .. which is what I expected because I have been dealing with this company for many years .. I have a credit to my account of the full amount I paid and it can sit there until I choose to apply it to a purchase .. I want to save it for next year's roses that they will have .. So although I am so disappointed that the roses didn't take ... I have something ot look forward to with next year and what selection Veseys will have !
BTW .. it didn't turn me off bare root roses .. I have amazing ones from Veseys that are perfectly beautiful and blooming away like mad : )

It's always a disappointment that while we toil away in our flower gardens, and nothing matures....but having to look forward to trying again the next season is truly promising.

And your sky photos just brought me a feeling of peace within...we had a family member lose his life this past week, and your photos touched my heart much reverie in those beautiful clouds.

The clouds look as if you could reach up and touch them. Beautiful. Glad you have such a good company to work with.

I agree Joy, I have just as good luck with the bare root roses as the potted ones. There is just such a short window of planting time with the bare root. Sometimes it is the only way to get a certain variety.

I saw some very interesting could formations last weekend and immediately throught of you.

Lona said...

What beautiful shots of the clouds Joy. I love the slice of moon in the sky.
Glad to hear that they gave you credit for the two dead roses. Now you can plan for next year. LOL! Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

Joy, I am in love with the teddy bear ears!! Actually, all of those sky photos are worth printing and framing. Very nice!

Have a great weekend and I hope the weather gods shine on you. :)

Gorgeous clouds, as usual! We haven't had many pretty sunsets this summer, too many storms I guess.


I'm so glad Vessey's treated you well. I look forward to your purchases next year. Beautiful shots of the sky, clouds and moon. I saw that same moon here. :)

Anni girl hello there : )
It is a continual circle of life and expectations in our gardens isn't it?
I am so very sorry for your loss. It is such a sadness to lose some one we love. If my pictures gave you any comfort I am very touched. It was amazing that early evening watching the sky .. something touched me as well Anni .. it was a special time.

Hello Lisa girl: ) the sky was very special that evening : ) and YES ! Veseys stands behind it's plants, so I have a little "piggy-bank" waiting for me next Spring : )

Eileen girl hello there : )
Isn't that so true about bare root roses ! I have wonderful ones from the same company but that window of time for that time closed shut?LOL
I am happy to stick in your mind when you see something interesting girl : ) wink wink

Hello Cher and thank you for stopping by : )My girls love any and all compliments, wink wink and thank you for my compliments as well! LOL

Marguerite girl .. I have had no problem with Veseys at all even when I didn't enclose photos .. they take my word for it when I say a plant has failed .. so even though it does back up your case a little more .. they are behind me 100% .. if you have any plant fail from them I would let them know even without pictures .. and .. they are right there on PEI ! LOL

Lona girl I know you are planning for next year too so we are both in 2012 mode aren't we ? LoL
that evening was amazing .. and I saw it only by accident .. those are the best kinds of moments aren't they ? : )

Hey Barbee' girl thank you : )

Thank you Lola girl and yup .. not as many because my garden is big and mature now .. but certainly a couple? here and there ? LOL

Ms S girl thank you so much and YES! I have some saved in full pix count to print out for my garden office that just might come together this winter ;-) teddy bear ears are just too whimsical eh ?LOL

Robbin girl thank you !
I find that too .. not great sky pictures very often during the summer .. but wait for Autumn .. I know they will be wonderful ;-)

Grace girl thank you so much : )
It was just be accident I looked out the deck door and saw the "sky show" .. I fell in love and snapped away : ) Yup, Veseys is a good company so I knew they would honour problem plants thankfully ! phew !
Wasn't that moon pretty ;-)

Vetsy said...
