Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there. I hope you had a wonderful day either with your own children or with your mother. It was quiet here as my five adult children live all over the country but I did get calls and presents! And my husband totally surprised me while eating out tonight by pulling a pair of diamond earrings out of his pocket! In almost 36 years of marriage, he has never done such a thing. It was very sweet and the earrings are beautiful.
I leave you with roses - not a great photo as I just have a point-and-shoot digi camera, but I love my old English roses that are now blooming profusely. These are Abraham Darby roses as I recall. I planted them at our former house and when we moved two years ago, I just had to order more. They are the most beautiful color! They also smell wonderful and require no special care.
