yesterday I caught a slight whiff of roses and realized the very pleasant fragrance was coming from our bush in the right front garden. I don't remember these roses having a fragrance last year. For that matter I don't remember the blooms being as large as they are this year either. Yesterday wasn't the first time I had taken note of the size of the blooms. I had commented to Lyn about the size of the them when they first appeared a week ago and I am still amazed by them. .
I can not credit my gardening skills with the success of this bush. It is strictly by luck or nature that it is looking so well. Last winter Lyn and I chopped it down mercilessly in the dead of winter before she draped lights on it for Christmas.
I am still quilting and will continue today after I get back from seeing Angels and Demons staring Tom Hanks.
Health and fitness report: I am still walking and have reached one goal I set for myself and that was to walk three miles in an hour. Yesterday it took me 60 minutes and 12 seconds to do so. Today starting into week five it took 59 minutes and 38 seconds. Yeah and I am down 48 pounds. Double yeah.
