Ramblings from and English Garden

My first David Austin to bloom Miss Mary Rose.  Her scent is lovely!
Remember my Iris Carnage...they are alive!!!

Giveaway going on at Ramblings from an English Garden. Stop by Barbara's to wish her a Happy 400th post. You will be entered in for a drawing featuring what else but a gorgeous teapot and cup and saucer from DaySpring.

If you have a moment stop by and read her life story. It is a fascinating adventure. She also features many, many English gardens and beautiful shots of the English countryside. I promise you won't be disappointed. She is one special lady with a very special blog.

One other bit of news. I had a birthday today.  As some of you might recall my computer kept crashing this year off and on...for the last three weeks I have been making do on Dan's.  Well he must have decided enough was enough and bought me my first brand new computer.  I have always just used his hand me downs.  Now I have a brand new shinny Dell Studio lap top.  I have a lot of new programs to learn.  This computer specializes in graphics...well we will see if I can do anything with just some of its capabilities.  It was a nice little deal from Costco. 

The best part of the day came when my husband cooked me a prime rib dinner and Meg baked me a cake, and bless her heart did the dishes too.  All the while I just sat down and held baby Avey.  It was a very wonderful and blessed day!  

Thanks to all my family and friends for all your good wishes and love.

One more thing ... a big shout out for Kris Allen who deserved his win on American Idol!
