Spring is in bloom

May 18, 2012 0 Comments

Every year I make such a fuss about my roses and this year will be no exception. Sorry. They are just too gorgeous not to share.

I’m not a gardening expert by any stretch of the imagination, but for some reason, my roses do so well every year. Despite the fact that I do nothing to enourage them. I prune them, but that is it. I planted the climbing rose bush 4 or 5 years ago and each year it gets prettier. It also does an excellent job of hiding some of the old, ugly railings on our porch.

The scent is just amazing. I love to sit on the porch in the afternoons, read a magazine, sip on something cold, and smell the roses.

After I took some photos of the porch, I decided to try and take some pictures of little Violet. And she did everything she could to avoid me and my camera.
The little stinker.

“No, I will not look at the camera, mom.”

Her older sister is always more than happy to have her picture taken. Meanwhile, the little one is hatching up a scheme to escape the situation.

These pictures show a little bit of Violet’s personality: independent, determined, playful, fiesty, and, did I mention, independent?? I think I’ve developed a few gray hairs thanks to her. Oh my.
Have a great weekend!
