Thoughts and Posies!

This is our oldest rose bush.  It was here when we moved in 30 years ago, and we have moved it twice.  I have no idea how old it really is.  Look at all those buds!!!  My climbers are literally covered with buds.

The peonies are just starting to open.  I can't wait till all those buds open up.  I sure do love the smell of them.

I sure hope all those little buds turn into raspberries.

Baby bunches of grapes!

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.  The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."  
Thomas Edison

I think this statement covers everything.  If you have a bad financial week or slip up - just get back on the bandwagon and start again.
There is NO way to fail, as long as you are trying.



  1. Beautiful Blooms, Cheryl! the last of the iris that were here when we moved in...down to just one root, may not make it, so I am glad your rose is still going strong!

    I started to slip on buying food for breakfast and lunch, but caught myself and am back on track today. It is a day to day committment for sure.

    1. Hope your Iris make it. We had some here when we moved in and they gradually died.

      I think we all struggle with expenditures. It is just something we all have to work at.
