~A David Austin Rose From Harry~

 I'm so excited!!
I just received a
  David Austin Rose!
Our daughter, Katie's boyfriend, Harry, 
ordered it for Stan and me as a gift!
How lucky are we. It's called,
 "Jude the Obscure".
Can't wait to see it this Summer!!
I wanted to share with you also,
 a Cake Stand Harry gave me for Christmas.
He brought it all the way over from England.
I love Cath Kidston and all her wonderful designs.
I love it.
Speaking of flowers,
 I couldn't resist this beautiful blue hydrangea.
So pretty!!
Our forsythia is starting to bloom now.
I love the yellow flowers on it.
I can never have enough cabbages for the garden.
We were gardening this weekend and Stan placed the 
Heart Stepping Stones in a new area.
Can't wait to see the new bulbs come up!
I was seeing Hearts in the garden everywhere.

I started to make some decorations for the Valentine's table.
I'll share with you our Valentine's table
 this week at Simple & Sweet Friday's.
Candies out for the kids.

My friend, Margie, surprised me with Red Roses today. 
Thank you, dear friend!!
You made my day!

  2. Your garden is gorgeous and the hearts are so sweet! So excited for you and your new rose!!

  3. Oh my gosh! I looked the rose up and it is absolutely, positively, beyond gorgeous and it's also suppose to smell just divine!!! You are one very lucky momma-in-law. Love the cabbages in the bicycle basket.

  4. Such lovely gifts. What color is your rose? Love the pretty tiered plate. Everything looks so lovely - and the heart stepping stones.
    What a wonderful friend to bring you such pretty roses.
    Have a great evening.

  5. Your Forsythia is in bloom? Holy moley, I have five feet of snow and it is 10 degrees right now.

  8. Hi Jody, what a wonderful garden and the gifts so thoughtful. The garden of hearts is just so unique. I imagine the roses will be gorgeous this summer and the cake stand is darling. Love the roses from your friend. I am inspired by your hydrangeas and can't wait for mine to pop out of the ground once more this spring. We are warming up to the 70's this weekend. So happy about that.
    Have a great day. Hugs
