Junie's Place: Our day

Our day

A quick update on my husband:

He has been reasonably inactive since he got home-and seems to be getting better...responding to the
meds. He will be sore for awhile, in his back and chest, but at least we feel we're past the danger point with the pneumonia.

We have another ' pre-paid' event scheduled for tomorrow night here in Ocala at one of the hotels; the annual retired policeman's reunion. I'm not sure we can make it but perhaps we can . If so, we'll go for a shorter time than we normally would have. We'll see how it goes-and how we feel tomorrow.

I did some gardening today. I have recently been on a buying kick for garden plants! It happens every year in the spring-I just can't help it :) ...but I suppose there are worse addictions to have!

Anyway, this last batch of plants I bought last Sunday when I had to go out for some food items at Wal-Mart; having postponed my shopping after Charles ' injury on Thursday.

I had seen a fabulous yellow rose at Donna's site, 'Made In Heaven.' It was a rose I didn't know but I was so impressed, I made a promise to myself to try and find some of these roses! Imagine my great joy at seeing some yellow roses on display in the garden section at the store ....and seeing this name!

Yes! The very rose I had recently seen at Donna's place.

Of course I took that as an omen- (a good one)- wouldn't you have?

I bought myself 4 of these roses and one for Joy- my daughter-in-law!

(... see-I had never seen or even heard of this rose before...so the whole thing was interesting, the way it unfolded for me! Oh- and the roses had a good price tag on them too!) :)

Today I got my 4 new roses planted-along with the other flowers! Sure hope they do well!

This is such a pretty yellow rose, don't you think so!

I'm including some other of my roses and flowers for your viewing pleasure, too!

The red one is 'Don Juan' and this bush is starting to really take off!

The orange one is 'Tropicana'- a new bush I planted last week.

... some other assorted flowers/roses around my yard!

-and especially roses-
are way high up on my list of things I'm thankful for
...but you all know that!

Enjoy your spring !

Don't you just LOVE a yellow rose??
Yours is Gorgeous! Yellow ones just seem to do well as do the red ones...I run into trouble with All the rest! Oh, and the Tropicana is pretty hardy!
Happy weekend to you both!!
Get some rest!
