Pink Roses

With a big sigh, aaaahhhhhh.............
today is the first day of my vacation!
After working OT every week since January I am 
ready for a break.

My BIL in law is in town to celebrate his 65th birthday, so my husbands family will be having a big dinner out tonight at a restaurant in downtown St. Louis.
His birthday is the same day as our wedding anniversary, so maybe we will celebrate a little tonight with Mr.
But this morning my BIL and SIL want me to take them antique shopping.
Who am I to decline that request!

Maybe I will find something like my sterling silver creamer that I use for displaying my roses.
I found it on a trip to NC, picked up a cute town, Mebane.

My knock out rose is going crazy! The blooms are beautiful and they are on longer stems that I can actually cut and make a bouquet. Especially since I lost my pink Mary Rose because of the 
broken water line.

Mixed in with one my David Austin roses.

and my pink columbine I planted last year looks so pretty!

Hope you have a wonderful Saturday planned!

Enjoy every minute of your time off, Ann! Make sure you do lots of things you want to do JUST FOR YOU!

I have a knock out but have to move it...its feet are too wet in the spot it is in. Blessings- xo Diana

Your roses are so pretty in the silver pitcher. My knock outs are doing great right now too.

Vacations are the best if you can do things you enjoy. Sounds like you will be having a great one.
