Memorial Day

My long weekend was not what I expected it to be. I had so many things to do and I ended up deciding to just relax for a change. I got a pedicure and even took a couple of naps. A rare treat these days! I did end up finding the motivation to work in my garden and did get some things done that I'd been putting off.

My climbing rose is finally blooming!

I wish I could post the scent they give off. Intoxicating! This rose is only 2 years old. If you're looking for a vigorous rose to grow on an arbor, try this one - New Dawn. It is disease and pest resistant.

Peony bloom ... They last such a short time. The petals were falling off as I took this picture.

And I can't help but show off my Happy Girl's very first pigtails! She has so much more hair than her sister did at this age.

Okay, so they weren't perfect and she wasn't too sure about them ...

... but she forgot all about it once she got outside!

Have a good week!
