every morning is a new surprise in the garden, although tomorrow I had better get out there and water and fertilize everything…

we have a bit of a tradition at work… we celebrate birthdays by circulating a card for everyone to sign and then pick up a rose for the birthday person… it is always fun to try and find a way to surprise them, because everyone knows the plan… today we had a lovely gathering and gave a colleague a beautiful orange rose…

we got some great pictures of the group and I got a couple of nice shots of the rose…

used to be George’s job to pick up the roses for me when I couldn’t get to the florist… now I put on the big girl pants and get them myself, lol…
