Like most Sunday mornings, I was the first to get out of bed, relishing my time in a quiet house, enjoying a little CBS Sunday Morning, and on this Mother’s Day Sunday, a beautiful bouquet of red roses.
I enjoy growing many types of flowers, but never have given much thought to growing roses. I’m not sure I have the patience and/or dedication I’ve heard it can take to grow them well, so I appreciate that husband bought me a type of flowers you won’t find in my garden.
And I like how perfect they look sitting in the vase on our dining room table, with the not-so-perfect, somewhat messy kitchen in the background, the refrigerator full of reminders of our busy life.
Kind of a calm in the perfect storm that is our life.
