I've been away a little while, and this is why: I have been visiting my daughters and grandsons in Florida, and my son, daughter in law, grandsons and granddaughter in North Carolina. I am filling up my heart here with them all and will return next week. I have been meaning to do a post and have some wonderful pictures and updates, but can't manage to get it all ready for a blog post yet, so I will do it a little later, when I get a minute free. The rose above is from Marie and Elizabeth's rose garden; isn't it lovely? I will pop over to everyone's blog when I get a chance and see what you are all up to. I hope you have a great week.
