It was an exciting day in the garden...
(click photos to enlarge)
I was surprised to see
the early Crocus opened today...
We have had an unseasonably warm
couple of weeks...
what a joy to see their bright happy faces!
bathed in a bit of sun....
I am sure we will still have more snow
February is usually our snowy month...
but, what a nice mid-winter break this is!
On Monday... I went to Half Price Books.
I saw on someones blog they had found some great books...
(I wish I could remember who?)
I was wanting
books of Rose plates....
I plan to collect frames at garage sales this summer
and fill my house with a rose garden
of these amazing botanical color plates...
When I got to the store
they had two books of good quality prints...
The first had larger plates and a white background
the other smaller plates on a linen colored background...
I couldn't resist buying both ;-)
They make my heart sing!
I took a quick peek in the gardening section of the store
and found this giant book!!
The Ultimate Rose Book
No kidding, this book features 1500 roses,
with lovely color photos,
and weighs in at over 7 pounds!!
Today I will be joining...
the Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday
Thanks for visiting me today!
