Hello Again, I'm Back
I'm sure there are many new members since I've last posted. Although I have lurked for my rose fix from time to time.
We've moved to Upland and am now re-starting my rose garden.
So far I have : )
Mr. Lincoln - Boy did she decide to start blooming like mad, and the basil breaks, WOW!
Hot Cocoa - one of my mothers day gifts, my good girls!
Rosy Dawn - She took off like crazy after living in a pot at my mothers house for years and finally finding freedom in fresh soil!!!
Old Timer but I am not positive about that one, right color the blooms are more like Just Joeys
Abbaye de Cluny
and a dozen cuttings rooted for me by my mother which she didn't lable, lucky for me I will be able to compare them when they bloom, I bought her almost all of her roses.
It's good to be back and creating a new garden. My soil is amazing! We found a cute house sitting in the middle of a 4 or 5 acre lemon grove.
My daughters have grown, my older one Kimi finished HS early at the start of her JR year and started College this year. My younger Anastiina is actually doing a combo of 6/7th grade work, she's technically a 6th grader studying Pre-algebra and Chemistry (by choice.!!!)
Due to my back disease I am unable to do most gardening chores but my sweet DH has been planting my roses and enabling me with new bushes whenever he can. He still works down in OC.
Gosh I've missed you all! Now, I will appologize upfront for forgetting whose real names go with their screen names. My medications have compromised my memory. But I do remember so much about so many of you!
A few personal notes to individuals but I would love to hear updates from all my old friends.
Sam, I hope your still around and that your roses are blooming and that your horse is well.
Chantel, Please let me know how you are and how Alexis is doing! Kimi thinks of Alexis often and please tell her that Lexi's Dream is healthy and happy.
Hershigirl, How's your beautiful daughter? I remember her baby photos and she was precious.
Denise, I've missed your wisdom and your friendship. I hope your family is well.
Carol, Are you still here? If so, I owe you a phone call. The best I can say is I'm sorry.
Maria, I hope you are flourishing.
All my old rosy friends please know I miss you all and hope you will forgive my disapearance. I will try not to be so remiss in the future.
So many more folks out there deserve a personal note, but my family is calling for my attention.
I hope to hear updates from all of you! It sure is good to be back.
