Its amazing how much happens in a garden in just 2 days, especially with a good rain! We were so glad to get home from the hospital with Etta Rose:
Of course, one of the first things I had to do upon my return, was to walk around the garden....so much happened! The peonies bloomed!
All the good rain we had while I was in the hospital really helped along all the veggies:
Everything practically doubled in size! And, look at all the blackberries we are going to have!
But, most noteable is the rose that bloomed! I planted this out in the fall: Mdme Alfred Cartiere. They are on either side of the arbor in the back and will look so pretty when they grow up big. So for now, on our first day home, a new rose for our new rose:
We enjoyed our little stroll in the garden and now I must figure out a time in the day to do my gardening...but, all in good time. For now I am enjoying my little Rose :)

Thank you for the beautiful pictures especially of you and the baby. That one you will treasure in your heart forever. I've been a Dad seven times, but Dads never get the same feeling that a Mom gets and I can see it in your eyes.
You have a great day and happiness be showered upon all of you. Bill Mitchell

Wow, look at you! You have planted your own little sunflower out into the world!
No matter how old you get, you can still rejoice in another families blessings. I wish the best for you three (or more?)!
I agree with Bill - what a beautiful mom your baby got to see for her first day! When it comes to babies, nothing ever ranks up there with a Momma. There is just Momma - and then there is the rest of the world.

Look at you girlfriend! You don't even look like you just had a baby! So proud for you and hubbie. I bet your other little girl is excited to finally be the big Sis too! How exciting for her! You have a precious family and as always your yard is breathtaking!
