Bringing the garden indoors

With all of the progress with things growing in the yard I have been cutting flowers and bringing them indoors to enjoy.  There is definitely an art to flower arranging and I have not perfected this art or come close to it. However, that won't stop me from enjoying this beautiful iris arrangement straight from my garden.

Wednesday Vignette: Pink Roses

I think the roses I like the best are the pink ones. They remind me of romance. The light pink rose is is Madame Alfred Carrier and the dark pink rose is Peggy Martin.

Roadside Photos

 I have passed this dilapidated, vacant, charming old house on my way to Houston to visit my sister or to A&M to visit my son many times always thinking it would make a great photo. Finally, I stopped and took a photo with my tablet. I just love the simplicity and the country feel this evokes.
