My Heart is so Full

Now I just did a post telling you that we never celebrate Valentines, and we don't.  Then the mailman came and brought me this fabulous card.  It's from my dear friend Gloria @ Happy To Be.  You know how you make a friend in blogland and they become some of the most precious people to you, well Gloria is one of those,    She is so loving and so sweet, just made my day.  Sure wish we could sit and enjoy a cup of tea together like the picture.  That would be an unreal treat.



 As I am reading this and getting all mushy inside, DH walks through the door with this beautiful heart and miniature rose bush.  He was at the nursery picking up some fertilizer and said he thought I would like this since he knows I love roses and especially the miniature ones that I can keep in a pot.



 Can you believe all of this.  For someone who doesn't celebrate Valentine's, I think I am doing pretty good.  Wow, I am so thrilled with my treasures.  How fun is this.  Maybe this is a holiday that I need to rethink, so far this is a ton of fun.


I hope you get a ton of surprises too.

  14. Oh boy, you have to make sure you get him a card and some chocolate now, Marty! : ) I love the mini roses. Do you find they do well in pots? I don't have a garden anymore, so I'm starting to think about what I might plant in pots here.

  30. How Sweet! I just told DH yesterday I'd rather have a rose BUSH that I can enjoy for years for the same price as a bouquet of cut roses that will die within a week. Your miniature ones are beautiful, Marty...love the color!

    Such a pretty card from Gloria, too! I must look for some like that, since all my friends drink tea. :-)

    I'd say you're doing pretty good for someone who "doesn't celebrate" Valentines Day! LOL
    Hugs,
