Though we are not yet officially married, Charlie and I had an anniversary of a first meeting yesterday and he walked through the door last night with a dozen, long-stemmed, red roses. Yes, he’s a keeper. Aren’t they beautiful? And they smell as wonderful as they look.
The vase, by the way, is one of my favourites (below) and is a perfect size for such a bouquet. It is Tara bone china which my ex-sister-in-law carried home in her luggage, all the way from Galway, Ireland. She’s a keeper, too!
As for the yellow which delights me, these little yellow tomato seedlings thrill me to bits! When I planted them the first time, they sprouted faster than I had anticipated, and I was too slow taking their little “hothouse” cover off…they got moldy. These ones, however, are doing just fine — it’s so amazing how they strain toward the light. In a day or two, I’ll thin them and then transplant a few of the hardier ones into separate pots.
