My neighbor gave me some mini roses that she had. She never planted them cause she said roses don't grow well for her, and I said, "really, that's usually the only flower that blooms for me." As I mentioned before, it's hard to get a landscaper up here in the mountains, so I thought I'd give it a try and plant them myself. Before I moved in, my brother had many garden tools stacked in the patio area - he thought of everything, and I've been using all of them this Spring around the house. One of the rose bushes is pink, but my neighbor forgets what the other one is, so it will be a surprise when it blooms.
The second one planted wasn't as sturdy. The roots were falling, and I'm wondering if it will make it. But I dug deep, filled each one with Compost, gave them a little love, and we'll see what happens.
May is a grand month for me because it's Mother's Day and my birthday month. The girls sent me lots of goodies, and everything fit just right.....socks, underwear, dish towels, candles, Skechers. With one of the purchases at Victoria Secret, they sent Jess a pink rose, which she slipped inside the package to me.
Nel found a blouse with red and pink roses on it, which I loved.
A Quail and a Robin visited me on my birthday, and I got a picture of the Quail, well the back of it. ; )
I mentioned to my neighbor that it was my birthday, and the next day she brought over a mini homemade carrot cake. Oh, it was so moist and delicious. And she put a generous amount of frosting on it too. ; )
The girls bought me a red rose plant.
Nel showed me the miniature Singer sewing machine that Brian gave her. It belonged to his grandma, and he passed it on to Nel.
I thought this was the cutest thing. Nel made it for Jess for Mother's Day. It's a Mama Pamper Kit, and she used pastel silk flowers to cover the jar.
A handprint rose from Mia that I'll frame and keep forever.
Me and Jess have always liked miniature things. They make us smile. : )
