              Hydrangeas from my garden at the farmhouse a few years ago~~~~~
             Needed to feel today some sunshine and the reminder of warmer weather~~~~~

Scarlet Roses climbing up the Church Feeder~~~~~that was the BEST year for my Roses!
                                          I can SMELL them now


                               Sorry Lord, I know I shouldn't complain...................

                            Have beautiful, blessed days ahead~~~Roxie


  1. love your bh covered in roses, roxie:) it's 0 here now, and we're getting 7 more inches of snow this weekend--sigh.

  2. I agree Roxie, so scold..... Love the climbing roses, beautiful, Blessings Francine.

  3. Helloooo Roxie!*!*!
    CABIN FEVER ~ I know the feeling... 2 degrees and quite windy here in Wisconsin this morning... Too early to tell if the S*U*N will come out or not today... Snow is almost always a given 5 out of 7 days a week here!!! Hard to believe that your **GoRgeOUs RoSes** will once again bloom someday... Hugs to you... Stay warm... Jeanine Burkhardt

  4. I'm feeling about the same way, Roxie! I feel trapped inside when it has snowed and the temps are frigid. I'm so afraid to dealing with icy roads. It gets a little much when I actually have to get out, so I'll be glad when Winter is done. Snow flurries in the forecast for the next few days it seems, so I'll be running out this morning to try and get some things done.

  5. I like winter, but I'm so over all this snow and bitter cold temps. Looking forward to Spring!!

  6. We don't have a snow cover here to speak of,,,,but I am ready for sunny skies and the birds singin again!! January is almost over though and then things should move along ..... Hang in there!

  7. Hi Roxie! It's so cold here too, and it's supposed to get even colder next week. I feel like one of the 'mole people'. All I do is stay inside! I have planned a Target run for the afternoon, just so I stay sane. Lots of hot chocolate and good books...that's the ticket!
    Hugs, Ceil

  8. Hi Roxie,
    It is so cold here too and I am so over it. It was so sweet for you to show your lovely church birdhouse and flowers. Ohhhh to remember summer and fresh air and flowers. I want to see that so much again. I cannot wait!!! Stay warm. Thanks for the beautiful memories.

  9. Girl I feel your pain.... and am more than happy to look at those hydrangeas and that beautiful birdhouse with those amazing roses with you today....
    sigh... Stay warm.... keep dreaming.... Spring will come again...

  10. Oh yes.....this has been a real tuff winter for many people. We need more sun and Vitamin D :) oh and lots of flowers!! Was going to the grocery store (with the thought of getting a bouquet of flowers) and on the way there, the brake light went on....I headed home instead. My husband took the car to the service station (with NO brakes) the brake lines were all rusted out...another $400 to fix and we are without a car for the weekend. To say the least...a few flowers would have been nice to look at and smell...spring would be just a little bit closer.

  11. I am very familiar with that Erma Bombeck quote. (Isn't she just the BEST?) You and me both sister. Let's give what God has given us and be filled with joy. Then what we give will be pure joy too!
    Thank you for pointing that out for me!

  12. Dear Sweet Roxie - I am so glad you sent some sunshine and blossoms my way. Those roses are beautiful. Hope you are planning on growing some at your lovely new cottage...I can just see them now. See what hope does it will chase away those winter blahs. Hang in there spring will be comin! God Bless!

  13. Ahhh...I needed that! Thank you!!! :)

  14. Pretty pictures! I tried to comment on your latest post, but it wouldn't let me. We have very similar taste! I have lots of those same bath pics pinned from when we remodeled our bathrooms. Isn't is fun? And frustrating? lol

    Have a great weekend!
