The past several months have been go-go-go and The Mister and I have at times felt like we were losing our minds; so we made a point of taking a time-out this past weekend just to catch our breaths before the fall craziness begins. I got to do things like actually sit still long enough to read a book, relax on the deck with Eva while watching the silly wrens zipping around the garden, gather flowers for the house and I even rearranged the livingroom for the upteenth time. I also pre-ordered a couple of roses for next spring when Vintage Gardens posted their Fall release: the Bourbon, ‘Comtesse de Rocquigny’ and Tea/Noisette, ‘Rêve d’Or’. I have absolutely no idea where I am going to put them but I’ve got 9 months to figure it out. (On the subject of roses, I’ve been reading a lot about the decline of rose gardening over the past several decades and I have some theories as to why that is, but what do you think?) Today it’s back to business, but we’re both rested up and ready. How was your weekend?
