Beautiful, precious little rose buds

Today I had a wonderful family day at home ... it was pure bliss!!! I spent a cozy day at home with my brothers and parents just chilling out and not doing much except pottering around ... these are my favorite kinds of day!!!

it was such a lovely day, that I was in a hurry to get to my computer to share it with all my blogger friends ... oh aren't I a precocious little one????

It all started with this lovely climbing rose that my French grandparents Papi and Mamie gave me for my christening ... its the same age as me, and we are to blossom together .... so, mama planted it right here. "Here" is right in front of my bedroom ... so that as I grow up, I can see it from my bedroom window... isn't that romantic???

This, below, is my bedroom window. Seen from the outside.

Yes, I know. I am very messy. I think its a Bernard Bunch trait.

Anyway, back to my roses ... I spent the day helping Mama to install the pergola trellis thing and to plant the roses in the right place .... it was SUCH a hot day, but it was a family effort and I'm really quite pleased with the results!!!!

Mama would keep distracting me with idle chat and gossip and conversation ...

but I'm always happy to play along, if that's what makes her happy ....

Here Mama, would you like this muddy stone? A gift from the bottom of my heart ...

Awww, you don't want my precious gift??? Ah shucks .... you know what the heart of my bottom says to that?

Right mama, go away now please, SCAT!!! Stop invading my privacy with that flipping camera of yours!!!
