Happy Valentine's Day! Did your sweetheart do something nice for you today? Blondie gave me a sweet note:
And the aforementioned "sticks."
This rose bush reminds us of the rose garden we visited on our honeymoon. Plus, I have two puny rose bushes that need to be replaced. When he bought this one, he said he made sure to choose the heartiest variety they had for sale. The lady who helped him used to be a florist and educated him on the meanings of all of the different flower colors. She tried to talk him into buying the bush that produces red flowers because it symbolizes love, but he explained that since we're married we've pretty much established that. He wanted something low maintenance.
