Green and Yellow St Pat's


Supposed to be windy tonight and tomorrow.


Wanted to snap a few before the nasty 
winds empty the branches.
They've already put the rooster askew.


These Banks Roses all burst out in the last two days.
Every year without fail, they put on their best show
just for me.


All so fleeting though... it is sad..
and I am always careful.....


Alas, they vanish quickly but
 they give me such joy for a few days...

I have been out on the porch restringing lights and 
washing all the furniture and shutters down.
Another simple pleasure that 
just brings me joy.
I also popped into the library yesterday after work 
 and grabbed a tote full of novels.
Finished an Elizabeth Berg last night.
What more could a gal want?

I have those roses in my yard too though we are not even near blooming yet. I never knew what they were called, I took a sprig from my grandmother's yard years ago and they've gone wild over here!
Thanks for the info, they look beautiful in bloom at your house!

Lovely flowers so hopefully the wind didn't whip them around too much! We live on/by/next to a lake so wind is a constant and flowers don't do well on lake side. Guess I'll have to enjoy your pictures. Thanks for the inspirational list!!!!
