Patty's rose garden, Happy Sunday blog check in.

Happy Sunday!!  It’s been way too long since I shared photos from my rose garden here on my blog!  I hope you enjoy some pretties and that it brings you a spot of joy today!


Patty's rose garden bouquet for the craft room!


I do share lots of my garden and rose photos on social media, but I realize not everyone follows me outside of my blog, so that’s why I decided to share a little today!  The bouquet above was in my craft room (well, you can probably tell that).  You’ll see a bouquet in the background of some of my crafting videos… I try to keep a bouquet from my rose garden in my craft room all the time.  The colors and beauty inspire me and make me smile. 


Patty's rose garden, Whiskey Mac Rose cultivated from a cutting in 2016.

I know I inherited my love of gardening and roses from my mom… I just wish I could have appreciated her efforts more as a teenager at home.  The Whiskey Mac rose was her favorite in her garden.  After she passed away in 2006, we tried taking cuttings from her Whiskey Mac but I could never get them to root.   In 2016, Eric found a cutting from a Whiskey Mac on ebay (of all places!) – it was only 12″ tall – and we planted it, and it’s taken several moves around the garden (it’s in a huge pot) but as you can see above, it’s now VERY happy!! 

Patty's rose garden bouquet with Alsotromeria.

In my garden, I have 6 rose bushes and 7 Alstromeria.  As you can see from the bouquet above, I love a variety of colors in my garden and in my bouquets.

Above: this is my bouquet this week.  I love this pretty vase… it was from a grocery store!!!! 

And lastly, just cuz I wanted to document this… we were so happy when a few of the restaurants finally opened around here (at 25% capacity) a couple weeks ago… this was our first meal out INSIDE a restaurant since March.  Tacos de Costra for me and a Quesabirria for Eric, from Que Onda in Pinole.  SUCH GOOD food and a great variety too!

Thanks for hanging out with me today.  Hope you enjoyed the photos from my rose garden.  Do you have a garden?  What do you grow?
