Thanksgiving Roses


 We've started our morning out leisurely after getting back home last night, and before getting busy with things like laundry and painting, I thought I'd check in real quick to see how your Thanksgiving was.  Ours was wonderful... we just enjoyed two full days of family, food, and fun! 


A lot of my husband's family live out in the country in Alabama... a couple years ago my in-laws bought quite a bit of the acreage with a home after a relative moved away.  Now they usually spend every weekend out there and it's become our holiday gathering place.  When we arrived, I was shocked to see the rose hedge in the front of the house still in bloom. 


 So yesterday as we were all outside bundled up in the cold (the men were working on the tractors clearing out some brush while us girls were playing with the kids), I asked my mother-in-law if I could clip some of the roses to bring home. 


 Somehow the majority of the blossoms survived the ride home underneath Rosetta's feet and this morning as I walked into the kitchen, I was greeted with a beautiful, fragrant reminder of another wonderful Thanksgiving. 


I'm so anxious to hear how your Thanksgiving was... and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  8. It's the craziest thing but my knock out roses are blooming too. So glad you had a good holiday and what a perfect place to spend it. Mine was quiet. I made way too much food but I guess that's better than not having enough! Have a lovely Sunday...Ann
