I watered the Jackson Rose Farm last week so most roses would be peaking on Mother's Day. I got up extra early today, took Sassy for her walk, and got out my equipment:
- Nine vases and cups.
- Rose shears.
- A gallon of water.
I refreshed the altar flowers left from Ascension Day on Thursday, then began harvesting roses for the nine vases. We have nine homes on this cul-de-sac, besides ours, and each one has a mother or someone with a mother, so each one got a bouquet.
Several got premium bouquets -
- Mrs. Gardener next door adores roses but her husband does not have a knack to grow them.
- Our friend with daughters galore - the four S sisters - got a special bunch. Each daughter's name begins with S, so we just call them the four S's.
- Our landscaper Army Ranger vet lost his mother not long ago, so he and his brother living there and their step-father all mourn her.
