I continue to be amazed at this rose bush from the Antique Rose Emporium. For two years, it has bloomed like crazy—no matter the season. It's also trying to take over the front corner of the house and I'm just letting it do it. It is so pretty!
Lenea came by the house this past week bearing gifts and friendship. She gave me a challenge and that was to start doing photography around the house, especially during this time of treatment and recovery.

When we paddled out into a sea of glass. These are the back waters of Lake Hartwell. I love this area. While the paddle out was smooth, the paddle back was straight into the wind. Pat has taken over my little sit on top boat. These little boats can be tossed into an SUV and [...]
