Friday I purchased five "Knock Out " rose bushes from a local garden shop. I have this strip on the side of my front yard where I had planted dahlias several years ago. They did fine for a couple years and then last year I had one bloom. So Bob took his rototiller to the strip and I cleared out all the debris and Friday afternoon with the help of my grand daughter I planted the 3 pink and 2 red "Knock Out" rose bushes. They are described as a "tough and hardy landscape shrub rose." I'm hoping as they grow...they will spread out and create a row of beautiful color. My next door neighbor has already voiced his approval...they have rocks in place of lawn, so you can understand his approval of my flowers.
My grand daughter spent Friday night here and Saturday I helped her make a summer nightgown. I did most of the machine sewing, because she hasn't had a lot of experience in that area but she was right at my side all day, helping where she could. When my son-in-law picked her up, we had it all done but the facing around the arm holes and she will do that by hand.
This afternoon, I ventured to the other end of town to The Grand Cinema to see the movie "Miss Potter." The life story of Beatrix Potter played by Renee Zellweger. It was delightful (no bad language or sex scenes) and I recommend it to anyone who has read and loved The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
Well, that's all for now...I have a gray and white kitty begging for her late afternoon food, so I suppose I should get off here and comply with her wishes. I hope everyone is having a good weekend...here in the U.S. it's a three day weekend for most.
Until next time, Linda
