There are few floral combinations I like more than roses and clematis. I have tried to plant them together throughout my garden. The lovely blue clematis and roses are a beautiful pairing, pleasing to my eye every time I glance their way. The photo above was taken in my garden this morning.
This is such a beautiful time of year! Even Charlie is enjoying it now that the screen panel he broke through has been replaced and he's no longer "grounded." He selects a chair in the sunshine, and he chills out watching the birds and squirrels, a happy cat pastime. I'll be joining him on the porch this afternoon as I finish reading Eiffel's Tower, a book by Jill Jonnes I'll be discussing with a group tomorrow.
I have resolved, now that my blog is 10 months old, to try to be a better blogger (and have zero typos)! Long ago, I mastered photography. Unfortunately, I am having trouble mastering makeup photography. Plus, I'd love to improve my feed. I've read every how-to article on earth, and I can't figure out how to do what I want to do (such as include the first photo). Time to get some professional advice! Thanks for sticking with me as I've "grown" in this space!
I'm ready for The Friday Forum! Most of you know, we "share" information in The Friday Forum. Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Tell us about it! Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Tell us why! Do you have questions others might be able to answer? We can help! Want to talk about skin care? I'm game! Just use the comments. We have busy weekends and slow ones on the forum. Either way, I always enjoy hearing from you.
Have any special plans for Mother's Day? I'm going to buy a gift tomorrow (nothing like last-minute shopping), and Sunday I will make sure Mom enjoys a great dinner - at home since she has refused to go to a restaurant (too crowded).
As usual, I will share beauty bits with you over the weekend. I'll put them in the comments, so check for free shipping offers and other treats from beauty companies.
The microphone is yours!
