Good morning Folks ~ It’s hard to believe we’re a week into August already. It’s been hot and very humid. There has been a let up in T-storm activity and I am glad of that. There is still a chance of them each afternoon, as that is our ‘normal’ summer weather pattern.
I will be glad when Sept. 1 gets here as then I can get back to my somewhat normal routine of living my life. Going to visit Bella & Max three times a day, puts a crimp in my ‘laid back’ style. They are such good dogs though. I mowed over there this week and it took me two mornings to do it, as I just couldn’t do it all in one. The humidity was horrible and I just had to STOP. Even the dogs are ready to come back in after taking care of their outdoor business. Coming into the ac feels wonderful.
This is short and sweet. I did get 4 more items into my Etsy shop. I’m itching to do some more creating.
Here is a sweet rose that is a rooted cutting from the original, which croaked on me a year or so ago. I’m thankful this cutting made it and is blooming.
The rose is Penelope, a hybrid musk, with a delicious scent and a delicate color.
I love my roses. They touch my heart, they lift my spirit, they make me think of ‘love’.
"The Rose is gowned in petaled grace and lovely beyond telling;
She always lifts a friendly face, regardless of her dwelling.
Her golden silence can express to us, no matter where, joy shared;
Give solace in distress from those who fondly care.
The Rose has ways of saying things we much delight to hear;
without a spoken word, she brings and keeps our loved ones near."

Have a lovely weekend ~ FlowerLady
