I absolutely love roses and my rose bushes are just loaded with blooms this year! I was so excited when I drove up to my house tonight and saw that my cabbage rose bushes were covered in blooms! I couldn't wait to cut a few to sit on my desk in my studio to enjoy while I work. I planted four new rose bushes this spring. One bush is a Knock Out Rose and the other three roses bushes are thornless. They are called Smooth Touch Thornless Roses and are cultivated by Harvey Davidson. The large bright pink rose in my bouquet is from my new thornless rose bush. I checked out the website, www.smoothtouchroses.com and discovered that there are other varieties of thornless roses. I just may have to order some!
I wish they would have credited my shop or had a link to my shop! It is a nice blog entry though!
Becoming and being a mom is the most challenging, exhausting and yes, most rewarding thing I have ever done! There is no greater gift that God could have given me than my two boys, Zach and Ben. I am truly blessed with a wonderful husband and family!My boys and Me in Corpus Christi, Texas at the U.S.S. Lexington.

He knows how much his mama loves gnomes and mushrooms! I love his company name and logo on the back of the card!! Love ya Ben!
I have to do a shout out to my favorite nursery in Riverside, Missouri! They have the BEST selection and quality of any nursery I have ever been to and their prices are great! Check out their website and FaceBook page with the links above! They have been around for 30 years!
They have an amazing selection of succulents! I plan on making a succulent container.
Their vegetable selection is like none I have ever seen! They have at least 50 different varieties of tomatoes.
The colors are wonderful! They have four green houses full of just perennials. Greenhouses of just geraniums and the most beautiful hanging baskets! You can see my hot pink geranium basket in my last post.
I created Work of Whimsy as an outlet for my creativity! I create christmas ornaments on my day job. I had so many ideas that I wanted to bring to life and this was the perfect way. I can create whatever I want and if I am lucky there is someone out there that wants to buy it! So far it is going better than I expected!
