This gift came with three lovely four-inch potted mini roses (white, pink, and yellow) in a unique crate made of antique replica yardsticks. Here's Granny right after Fed-Ex delivered them: You can also see the Harry & David roses pictured here--quite full of blooms and lovely! I'm sure our roses will be just as pretty once they are planted and start thriving here in Virginia soil!
Sitting on Granny's trunk in her living area, they are quite eye-catching. Thank you, Reluctant Entertainer, and thank you Harry & David for a delightful Mother's Day gift. After all Granny has been through recently with back surgery and recuperation, this roses delivery was especially timely!If you are an long-time reader of Mountain Musings, you'll remember that a couple of years ago I won ten Knock-Out Roses for Granny for Mother's Day from P. Allen Smith, the gardening guru. You can read that story here. That was exciting, too, and we both loved it!
Anyway, we had a great Mother's Day weekend around here and hope that your Mother's Day with your family was a good one, too! I'm so very thankful for my wonderful family.
