Stop and Smell the Roses


Look what I got for Mother's Day! Aren't they lovely! Even though hybrid tea roses are a pain in the neck to grow in Minnesota, they are totally worth the effort! We had quite a few roses at our old house (and before we had kids). My sister even referred to us as "The Gardening Geeks." Back to painting.....
p.s. What About Bob? was the winner in the Fave Bill Murray Film Poll!

What a sweet gift. Do you want to trade the roses for my weird sculpture Anniversary gift?

Christina E. Rodriguez said...

Pretty!

Bella Sinclair said...

Gorgeous!!! And kudos to you for growing them. Between the black spots and the aphids and Japanese beetles, I gave up. But you're right, totally worth the effort.

Thanks, Christina!
So true, Bella- thank goodness they are so lovely!
