I am so excited. Awhile ago I ordered a climbing Eden rose from David Austin roses. They said it would be sent when fear of freezing in our area was over. So I guess that means no more snow for us!
Today when coming home from my daily walk with my Mom there it was sitting by the front door. I thought they might send me an e-mail saying it was on it's way or something..but they didn't. I am so excited to have this rose.
Here is what it looks like when I opened the box...
I have never ordered a bareroot rose before but it seems it looks healthy to me! I have the roots sitting overnight in a bucket of water as the instructions say to do.
I can't wait until the day it looks like this...
It was like Christmas in April...because also at the front door was my paint sample from Home Depot. I love their no shipping paint samples. They are so great for making into chalk paint and doing projects with! I wanted this color after I saw Sissie had painted a chair with it. It is called Delicate Blush. I love it!!!
Well, I am off to do some sewing. I did quite a bit of housework today so I get to reward myself with working on a project. That week I was sick really made me fall behind on the housework. I hate that. It is so hard trying to catch back up. So glad to be almost back to normal. Thank goodness for vitamin C!
Hope this finds everybody enjoying spring (April showers in our case!) and maybe finding time to be creative. Thanks for taking time out to visit!
