It's been a while since I have written. Time just seems to fly by!!! I have had another birthday. It was a wonderful week of cards, flowers and hearing from all my chicks!!! Then Mother's Day was here, and more cards and love from my chicks as well as my husband. It usually is quite nice weather wise by now, but we have had some unusual weather with late rains, cool weather . It was nice this weekend except for a cold wind. I had some really pretty peonies, but the late rains really did them in!!! My lilacs weathered pretty well, and I had more on my young plants than last year. The climbing roses were really pretty with lots of pale pink roses, more than I have ever had, so happy about that!!!! Only thing wrong with those, they bloom but once a year!! I worked in the garden for several hours today. Planting some plants that I purchased at our Garden club plant sale. I hope they grow good, you never know, some things do better than others. Got some new plants that are suppose to have pink flowers, we will see.
We had our volunteer BBQ and guess what!! I had the most volunteer hours of anyone since they opened the center!!!!!!! Got a nice plant, got to sign the big check, and also a great luncheon. I have met many nice people, and still enjoy the work, even though I probably spend too much time there!!! Have neglected some of the chores of the house and garden. Since we were closed today, got busy !!! Always feel a sense of accomplishment when I work in the garden. Do you? I am sure I will feel the affects of it tomorrow. :-) Yesterday got to spend the day with my daughter and granddaughters. It was fun, an antique faire in a town nearby. Found a few treasures, and some for the grands. It will be here again in October. We look forward to that. Well, of course it is Memorial Day, and I thought about men in my life who have served and are serving. Glad for the freedom that we have because of those men and women. Just wish we didn't have to have any more wars, and loss of life!!!!!!!! Until next time~~~~Antique Rose
