I am at Marshall's looking for a new top to wear with my dressy white UP pants.
You can see my messy hair...
but not as fast as I would like it to!
I have to persevere and be patient until the short layers are longer.
I found a top and some birthday gifts for our darling granddaughter Isla
who is turning 8 in June!
Where does the time go?
She is growing up just so fast!
The top is striped in blue and white
the silhouette is flattering as it camouflages some of my wobbly bits!
The garden is keeping me quite busy these days...
watering all the potted plants
dead heading the roses
I just get "caught up" in one section and then I have to start all over again!
I love being able to pop outside and pick our roses
bring them inside and arrange a bouquet
or as in this case give them to a friend
who hosted a celebration of life for a former colleague
who died unexpectedly
at the age of 70.
Which reminds us all that we need to live each day to the fullest.
Carpe Diem ~ seize the day!
We paid tribute to our dear friend and colleague Ray
in a beautiful garden
where we used to have our year end staff parties.
His wife attended and there were lots of hugs, tears, a toast and many stories were told.
She was very fragile
but was so glad that she was there
as she realized how much he meant to all of us
we were able to tell her about the kind things that he did for so many
students and the staff.
Here are two David Austin Graham Thomas roses.
They are heavily scented large sunny yellow blooms.
If you grow many roses as I do you'll come to realize
That they require attention and TLC
if they are to thrive and grow.
I only choose varieties that are fragrant, hardy and are repeat bloomers.
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
Hope your weekend has some fun packed into it.
