Respite with ROsEs

For the last few Fridays, I've been featuring a "passed" painter of the day. But this week has been a little crazier than usual...home school is winding down and the boys had an end-of-the year party with the extra-help class they attend...and, well, I'm sure you know how it goes.
(read a little story about that party at the end of this post)

So instead I thought I'd take a bit of a respite and show you the roses from an earlier post. I've cut some of these beauties and brought them into the house and AHHHHHH!! It is like we have our own little florist shop.

"I've always thought my flowers had souls." Myrtle Reed, Lavender and Old Lace

I think I'd rephrase that (sorry Myrtle) and say that flowers are good for the soul. . .my garden has been a happy place this week. Here are some photos of their blooms...sorry we don't have atomizers or fragrance diffusers on our computers! You'll just have to imagine..but the fragrance is wonderful!!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
The only "Passed Painter" story I do have was told by my son. He was explaining to one of the teachers who helps in the "Extra Help" class what I did in my spare time...SO glad he didn't say something embarrassing, like..."she talks on the computer all day to her friends" (no matter how true that may be!)

He said, "She paints dead people" (and no, he hasn't seen that movie with the phrase, "I see dead people", lol). Obviously this could be taken several ways. I could work at a funeral parlor and put make-up on the deceased, or I could paint the recently passed in repose, or what I actually do, which is to paint people of the past.

I didn't have a chance to talk further with that teacher...so who knows what she must be thinking!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and please stay safe!

Oh Suzanne, I laughed till I cried, "she paints dead people" ~ bless his heart ~ he WAS telling the truth. And, "SO glad he didn't say something embarrassing, like..."she talks on the computer all day to her friends" (no matter how true that may be!)" THAT was funny too!
I LOVE your roses... now that we have out house exterior painted I hope to plant around it again this fall... and I will buy roses.
