Red Roses



A bouquet of red roses showed up with my husband on Friday. What a sweetheart. We have enjoyed this weekend MUCH more than the previous, lost weekend.


In the midst of sickness, I wondered if I would ever have energy again. Our God-given healing mechanism is amazing - I spent Saturday outdoors, digging in my garden. The dirt was a little heavy with moisture, but the sun shone and I rid my garden bed of the last of the pesky vinca and lamb's ears. No more spreading plants for me. Not content to confine themselves to an allotted amount of space, they threaten to take over the entire garden bed and suffocate anything else that tries to grow there. 
 

Today we're back to chilly winds, clouds, and occasional drizzle. A good day to stay indoors and play with my camera and roses. How did you spend your weekend?

  3. The roses are beautiful and I'm glad you're feeling well enough to enjoy them and work in the garden. Mine is still under the snow, so it's been a bit of knitting, cooking and reading for me this weekend. There are good smells coming from the kitchen right now.

    Have a lovely (and healthy) week, Lorrie.

  12. Isn't that just how illness is? When you are at the lowest, you cannot imagine ever feeling good again! What a mercy that we recover relatively quickly.
    Your roses from your sweetheart are beautiful!

    It was a snow day today for me. We had over a foot and the plow did not clear our street so I stayed in and relaxed all day. It felt good!

  18. What a sweet man to bring you red roses. They are beautiful! We had a beautiful winter weekend with no storms. I see you have a spam comment above and I got the same one. I'd like to know how to stop these guys but I see they have eeked their way into Blogger.

  20. Simply exquisite deep red roses. I can see how they came home with your husband just for you.

    I didn't realize that vinca could take off in a garden garden like that. I use it sometimes as a trailing planting for containers and window boxes. The lily of the valley was all that I ever want to dig up again. In fact, it beat me. I gave up before I got it all out and I'm not going back to digging so it'll be some nasty plant killer unfortunately.

    We had a quiet Saturday and a lovely Sunday with family. It was good.
