Roses and Geese

Despite some pesky pests that I'm trouble-shooting, the roses have arrived and they're beautiful. I mentioned last year to David that I would like "a rose bush" since he said he knew how to take care of them. He planted 21 for me, and built the raised beds for them too!

Several varieties, but the big red one here is one of David's favorites, Mr. Lincoln.

I finished the flying geese units for my wall hanging! I started with these:

And now I have these:

And my back hurts, so no more work on the wall hanging today. Back to knitting, where I'm tinking a bit on a sock. More knitting progress reports later, but nothing really new right now.

Hi Sandra, What beautiful roses. How nice of David to build raised beds for all those roses.

Talk to you when I get back from Nantucket.

Between the irises and the roses, what a beautiful garden you have! I really love that orangey-red one in the first picture.

The Sirdar top looks great for summer- both pretty and cool. And I know next to nothing about quilting, but your geese look good. ;)

The roses are beautiful! The flying geese wall hanging looks to be making very good progress. And i hope your back feels better.
