Roses and Talents
I guess the fact that it's been in the 80's here for the past couple of days means the threat of frost is done. Every bush is blossoming except for the climbing red in the back yard.
I snapped a picture of the reddish orange blooms above to share my astonishment about this little climber. The photo in my previous post with the lighter orange rose is from the same bush!
Isn't it strange to have such a variety of colors from one plant? I don't know if it's grafted to be like this or if that evil farmer <-----over there has gotten chemicals on it already this year. I really should keep up with the varieties but I really don't have it altogether enough for all that.
This morning, while all the kiddies were reclining all around my living room as they waited for the school bus, we had a conversation about talents. Jerri and Alexis were talking about softball and how each team member had a talent. Jerri told Alexis that Calaeb's talent was catching and Alexis could stop the ball good so that was her talent. Alexis caught on and said, "Oh yeah! Everyone has a talent! Abby's is pooting!" She went through everyone naming their talent (notice one of Jillian's talents above). No one said anything for a minute or so, then Jillian came over, climbed into my lap and said, "And you're a good Nanaw."
I don't care what happens for the rest of the day, that was the highpoint!
