I sure do. Continue reading
I think most of us need some bright color in our lives right now. Continue reading
The costume store was on my to do list yesterday. It’s almost Halloween and I thought I would look for something new to wear. I usually go with an orange pumpkin T-shirt and black pants. This year I wanted to do something different. Once in the store, I was dazzled by the gorgeous colors everywhere. I was glad to have my cell phone, which gave me the ability to take photos. Above is a mask that caught my eye right away. Next I spotted the silver and black mask below.
Lastly, the spooky witch that one expects to see at this time of year. I did find a costume, but you will have to wait to see it, after all it isn’t Halloween yet.
Gratitude is what I felt as I walked in the garden this afternoon and discovered the Electric Blue Sage, a California native plant, and our orange miniature rose were both flowering. Their vibrant color always make my happy.
Roses in our house always make me happy. I love their beauty, color, and scent. I recently picked these from my garden and placed them on the kitchen table, to enjoy while eating our meals.
The orange rose is my Magic Lantern Tea Rose.
The red rose is my Trumpeter floribunda.
The yellow rose is Sun Flare. A lovely yellow floribunda.
The Trumpeter floribunda is my newest rose, but the Magic Lantern and Sun Flare have been in our garden for many years. I am sure they were planted in the 1980s. This made me wonder how long Rose bushes can live. I read that rose bushes can live six to ten years, but I know our rose bushes are much older than ten years. Apparently climbing roses can live fifty years. It’s no wonder I feel like our roses are part of the family. I hope you enjoy their beautiful color as much as I do. I would love to know how long you have had your rose bushes. Be sure to write and tell me.
