I’m excited that my David Austin Glamis Castle rose is full of buds and the first bloom is now adorning the little white and gray cubby in my office.
I purchased this rose bush at Heirloom Roses, and it was such a teeny, tiny thing a year ago.
This year it’s two feet tall and quite full and bushy.
I’ve now got my David Austin white rose, a floribunda “Sexy Rexy” pink rose, a floribunda yellow rose, and a peace rose growing in my back yard.
All are doing well and full of buds, probably due more to prayer, (literally!), than to any gardening skill on my part.
My first white bloom sits in a little ink bottle next to my old, pink clock.
The clock no longer tells time, but its girlish charm seems perfect for my girly office.
On another note, I purchased these galvanized tin letters at Pottery Barn Kids.
An E for me and an S for the Hubs now hangs in my office.
Kind of works out nice that our last name also begins with an S, so it’s my first and last initial as well.
I may put some old black and white photos of the Hubs and I as children in cute frames, gallery style, around the letters.
I’m also planning on making a little chalkboard for my office, and then it will be pretty much done.
Of course, I think I’ve said that before!
