I cut my first bouquet of roses yesterday. I love having fresh cut flowers in the house, especially when they come from my own yard. One of the things I miss about Germany, are the fresh flowers that are so available everywhere. It is pretty much a standard thing to take fresh flowers when you go to visit someone.

I could not help but think of this little girl when I found the quote to post with my rose photos...She is now mine...I feed her, and though she will not let me close enough to pet her, she is waiting at the front door two -three times a day for her food. She stays under the front porch with her three kittens - and even though she is less than a year old herself, she is the most perfect mom. Now that she is getting food on a regular basis, she is looking much better. And for sure, she has given me more than I can give to her. As soon as they (baby kittens) are weaned from their mom, I’m hoping to catch them so that I can take them in to have them spayed and neutered...and hopefully, homes.
