Of roses and birds

Roses given by my dear husband... just because...


Love the pink-yellow combo...


Same roses a week later... I can't really tell which I love best.  Fresh or dried; either way they speak loveliness to me...



Romantic touches in our master...


I love this yellow roses painting... a thrift store treasure, for only $12.99


New sheets... a touch of spring in our bed


Love them!


What have you been doing lately? Yesterday, I started spring cleaning the garden. Six big trash bags plus 3 binds filled to the top with debris; dead leaves and stuff gifted by an extra mean winter, went out this morning. And this is just only the beginning. So much to do our there! Do you remove the debris covering your gardens' floors after the winter, or do you leave it there? I don't like to see all that 'dead' stuff collected in my garden so I clean it all out. I even go to the trouble of removing each and every dead leaf that may be still hanging from my rose bushes... yeah! Which means a lot of extra work, plus about a dozen rose thorn scratches on arms. All worth it, really!

Today, is cold again; from one day to the next. So I'm staying inside; enjoying the birds from my kitchen window.


 What a blessing this is!

Thank you for stopping by!
