Roses are Red...



I'm not sure if I've mentioned it, but Dominic has a huge green thumb. We had a garden last year, and by 'we', I really mean him, but fortunately I got to share in the eating part, if not the growing part. This year, he expanded our garden to included a small potato field and a pumpkin patch. I love pumpkins and go crazy in the fall, decorating our driveway with them.

This year, he also decided to plant some flowers. In the land we purchased in the winter, there was a rock garden already in place.  It was so overgrown, I didn't think anything would come of it this year. We already had so much to do, with the wedding in June, and tidying up the yard, planning, getting things ready... planting flowers didn't seem realistic.  I got home from work one day and found this surprise waiting. Dominic not only cleaned out the entire rock-garden, but he planted some flowers for me. Most of them are annuals to fill it this year, and we'll plant other long-term flowers in the future. But the best part was in the center. A gorgeous red-rose bush.  He told me if ever he can't afford to buy me flowers, I'll always have roses from him. Completely melted my heart. I didn't expect roses to grow on it this year. Or for it to grow as much as it did. But it surprised me, just like he did, and there's tons of roses in bloom right now.

  6. You are so cute Jana! Love these fun pants- perfect for summer! You are so lucky to have at least one green thumb in your household, because we are lacking that. Throw in the desert sun and we are doomed from keeping most plants alive ;)
