The Final Tally:
5 for 5. Absolutely and completely unbelievable.
I decided that I needed to do something to celebrate. Given that I’m a bit old for a drunken spree, I already have plenty of pairs of shoes, and I’ve been trying to eat healthier (read: cut out desserts), I decided a jaunt over to my local nursery was in order. I came home with a few more herbs and veggies for the garden (to replace those that died during my hospitalization awhile back) and three new rosebushes. Honestly people that was the BIGGEST extravagance ever. Three. Rosebushes. In some ways I really wish I wasn’t a rose person–they seem so darn cliche and they are far from cheap. But these are gorgeous roses. The kind that sprout wild and lush ’round the far corners of grandma’s garden. My favorite is called “Mon Cherie” and has a pale pink center surrounded by rich red petals and a light spicy scent. I’m contemplating adding a new rosebush for every fellowship earned. Now there’s motivation!
