Rose Delivery Day!

Even though it was raining today, these little beauties were awaiting me on the front porch. They came all the way from California and some of them were even in bloom! Christmas in May-- I just love it!!!

Oh, just gorgeous, Stephanie! I especially love the moss roses. I had "Fantin-Latour" for years right next to my back steps, but it succumbed to a bad winter awhile back...you are inspiring me to try again!

Stephanie! Your roses are beautiful! I LOVE the first picture! It is SO cool! The texture is amazing!

I know how thrilled you are to get more roses! I hope they bring you years and years of smiles and happiness!

That IS a very special treat for a rainy day! You literally got a little part of California delivered right to your door.

What a fun day you must have had. I love, love, love your roses. One of these days I really want to get back into old roses.
We have had a duck couple in our back yard too. Now that we have opened the pool we have caught a glimpse of them doing fly-by's and wondering where there swamp went, poor babies.
Have a good Memorial Day weekend especially with this nice weather we hopefully will be getting today here in Michigan, finally.
Hugs,
Sue
