Well what have I been doing? Lots. Our AC unit finally fried so we had to have a new unit put in. Thank God(ness) my husband saves money. What do people do? All I can say is I really count our blessings and thank the good Lord for everything everyday! So that was that we are ready for a Texas summers which are brutal. If you don't water your grass on a steady basis it all dies, and the ground where I live is alot of clay so its hard to garden. Houston is a challenge!
Ok my husband just bought me many English roses from David Austin Roses in Tyler Texas. Mr Austin is a renowned Rose grower from England and cultivator. He now has operations worldwide bringing the unsurpassed beauty of the English Rose to many. Whats so wonderful is that these roses are virtually disease resistant. They are pricey but when you have bought roses from places like Walmart and they get black spot and look so crapped out you are happy to invest your money in a quality rose that will bring years of beauty and healthy specimens at that.
So above is what I ordered...all climbers. There is my order so you can actually go and read about the Roses if you go to David Austin Roses. The last date for ordering "bareroot" roses is in May so if your interested better hurry.
Next are two dogs made by Maria Grimes. Are they precious or what?! And well you can see that Doggie # 1 is a male! I am a beginning lampworker but this gal makes some really super lampwork aren't they just wonderful?! Many hats off to Maria! I'm looking really forward to my pug with his "thingies" hopefully soon in my mail box!
Well I had better get going as I have to work today...I sure hate workings Sundays no less weekends! Have a lovely day ox
