Hey there. My rose bush is doing very well this year. I was daring and chopped it way back this spring. I snipped some flowers this week and brought them inside to enjoy.
In other news, I'm stitching a lot here this week, and last night I saw Mrs. Oriole back for the first time since we left for vacation. She was at the new oriole feeder (an orange dish that hangs from chains) eating some very old orange. Of course, I put fresh oranges out last night, and it looks like the house finches have already been at them.
