Enjoying gifts.

Of course, we've been enjoying our wedding gifts all along (some of the more practical ones on a daily basis!), but I noticed the other day that a picture I sent to my Mom had quite a number of our gifts in it.

The plate rack, candles, candle sticks and vase were all from different friends. The fresh flowers were from Kyle. Thanks all!

Another gift I've been enjoying is the two beautiful rose bushes from the C. and D. families. Kyle planted them by the garage where I can see them from the kitchen window.

This one is named "Dreams Come True", and it's now blooming for the second time this summer. It starts out yellow and turns bright pink in the sunshine.

I like to bring the blossoms indoors. ;-)

The second rose is a delicate pink called "Falling in Love". These bushes were carefully chosen!

So lovely!

My friend Kathy grows roses, and shares a lot of photos from her garden here:

She's been one of the Titus 2 women the Lord has brought into my life, and I think you'll enjoy her blog.
