It’s Going to be Hard to Leave

Big Rose Bed, Fairfield Glade. May 23, 2009.

The picture above shows some of the roses in our large rose bed.  That bed contains 22 roses, but not all of them have bloomed yet.  But I can say that scenes like this make all the work very worthwhile.

Betsy and I are going to be visiting friends for a couple of days.  Judy and Charlie have a cabin in the western North Carolina and we’re going over there later today.  We met Judy and Charlie when Betsy and I lived in Hendersonville.  They still live there, but we have remained close.

This visit is for relaxation and to give Betsy and Judy an opportunity to ‘talk’.  Whether the talking will leave time for eating and sleeping remains to be seen.

I don’t think this trip will include any waterfall visits, although there are several in the area.  I’m taking some reading and may even get in a nap or two.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

    I would hate leaving without seeing all the rose bloom, yet the friends would be more important.

    What kind of books do you like to read?
