This year's mail brought a special surprise. In one of the envelopes there was a gift certificate from my dear friend Lauri! She ordered a Chicago Peace Rose for my birthday. Oh my gosh! According to the picture it's a beauty! Pink (yeah) with a golden center. The flowers change colors with shades of pink and golden yellow as it grows. (Fingers crossed here) I hope the tree trimming we did a few weeks ago allows for enough sun. Now I'm looking forward to another mail delivery. The rose will be delivered when it's time to plant it. Thank you my friend!
