Yes, spring is on it's way, and I took advantage of the lovely weekend we had here and pruned my rose bushes. I usually do this every February, but last year I missed it due to being worn out. I have eleven rose bushes that I care for and 7 of them are a Valentine gift from my husband from about 7 years ago. When we were first dating, he used to come to where I worked and scotch tape about 2 dozens worth of roses all over my car. He'd also send me roses, and bring me roses......he's very romantic. Well years ago, I was complaining about the boring view out of my kitchen window, nothing to look at but the neighbors house and the fence in between. On Valentines eve, my sweet hubby stayed up very late and planted 7 rose bushes for me to see the next morning. He was all scratched up when I saw him the next morning and I asked him how that happened.....he told me to go check out the view from my kitchen window. Well ladies, I saw roses planted and most of them were blooming, he jokingly said that this should take care of my view and I would always be supplied with roses. I replied that roses don't bloom all year long, so he'd still have to bring me some now and then, and he has.
I'm providing a lot of spring/Easter images for ya'll, and those of you participating in Sandy's Easter "spoolie" swap might be able to use some of these.
Have fun with these folks. Next up.....I'll be posting about my spring class, so stay tuned!
