This morning I did something for the second time in my life.
I cut fresh flowers from our small garden.
The last tenants planted some roses, which I thought were almost dead.
But due to the mild fall they are coming back to bloom.
As I stood there, still in my pj’s and bathrobe, hoping no neighbours would walk by,
I wondered when it was the last time that I cut flowers from my garden.
With all this moving around, we’ve had a lot of balconies with potted plants,
but only once before did we have fresh from the earth, growing by itself flowers.
The previous gardens mostly had grass, bushes and trees growing in them.
While cutting away, I knew who I would give my Friday Flower today.
She lives in Texas, where we also had the pleasure of living,
is a real giving lady and she makes me smile with her witty comments.
She loves red, so seeing my red roses made me think of Brenda.
I already talked about Brenda here, so for the people who haven’t been visiting her yet, she lives in her Cozy Little House. Knowing how she loves her red and blue, I used a blue bowl for these lovely red roses.
if I could have popped in today for coffee,
first I would give you a big hug and these red roses
and then I would enjoy your dogs and the new pondless waterfall,
while taking in some Texas air.
Enjoy the weekend everyone
