Melinda, my mother's name was Grace so I just had to have that one. Yes, you'd be looking ahead, while I am getting depressed because I know there won't be many flowers at all during Autumn/Winter here.
Lady of Meginch, described as a rosette type. It is certainly apt.
Lichfield Angel, next to the above. They have flowered repeatedly , a wonderful pair.
Finally a little Aster.
There is a flood warning here, darn it! Heavy rain tomorrow and the next day. I am getting sick of these tropical storms extending from coast to coast like they have this Summer. It is very humid here tonight. I shouldn't complain though when a friend in Queensland got a text message and a landline call today telling them they should consider evacuating. I am praying they stay safe seeing she won't leave her home.
