I had a great weekend. Rachel and I had a baby shower to attend Saturday afternoon which was lots of fun. Then we went to City Place in downtown West Palm Beach. It has the aura of a city, yet a hometown feel. The night was comfortable with a warm breeze, a nice band to listen to and lots of people watching. We did a little shopping, a little relaxing and a lot of enjoying.
Today we went to Home Depot and I bought some yellow and purple mums, a pink hibiscus tree and two beautiful rose bushes. When I was a little girl, we lived out in the country and I planted hundreds of tulips under our plum tree. I started out with red tulips and as the chipmunks scavenged the bulbs each winter, I added yellow. The plum tree was beautiful with white blossoms and a sea of red and yellow tulips below. It was a truly beautiful thing to see whenever you walked out our back door.
I also started a small rose garden, which my dad and grandfather added on to. We had every color rose bush imagineable and they were all so pretty. I've always loved flowers. I love to walk outside and be greeted with flowers. That is one of the main reasons I love living in Florida - I can have flowers outside my door year round. It's a beautiful thing.
