Well………….I shoulda known it…..that the fun and fun and beauty and beauty and awesomeness of all of these thousands of flowers at the ranch would yield some serious work…pretty much nonstop. Now…don’t get me wrong..it is totally worth it…….but the flowers KNOW they are loved around here and they grow and grow and grow and they bloom and bloom and bloom and then they say…..it is time for deadheading! It is time for pruning! It is time for thinning!!! (these are all new words that I am an expert in….google ‘em if you want to know more!) But…truly it is worth all of the work it takes…..just today these are the pretty remains from the last week of blooms in the pots…..
So….tomorrow is the 4th of July….and we come from a very small town where there is a traditional small town 4th of July parade…and TOMORROW….my 95 year old grandmother is going to be one of the stars of the parade…….so we made a sign for her today….we will make sure and take lots of pictures……she will be riding in a red convertible and she will look fabulous like she always does. We inherited her adoration of all things beautiful and lovely from her. She still does her hair and makeup every day and puts on beautiful jewelry every day…..I am sure she will be the picture of elegance and loveliness in the parade tomorrow morning and we can’t wait!
Here she is….this is her portrait from April on her 95th birthday.
She is the original brave girl…………we are going to tell you all about her very soon……tomorrow she will be honored and it will be awesome.
