Bloomin' Rain

A lovely rainy day in Texas today, I realized the rain would smack around my pretty roses , so I cut some to bring inside,
Boy do they smell sweet... like mangoes and honey....

Old fashioned home grown roses in Texas...

Here is a pic of our deck in the front, all slick with 'sky juice'

Little Zackary, saying" block ears mummy, daddy make big noise!"

while daddy uses the drill,

Have printed up my artwork onto beautiful textured cards, all packaged ready for art market tomorrow....

Another sweet Saturday.....
