...pictures of children and things I make for those of us who never grow up, and plants I grow in my little garden......

My favorite iris is Beverly Sills.
My favorite rose is this one because I rooted it myself from a cutting (twice) like my grandmother did it. Put a quart jar over it.
I have a plan for reading even though it is hard to come in from the garden. When you get really hot and sweaty, come inside for a break and read a little. This was an audio book I have waited seems like forever to get from the library. It is the sweetest story and the reader was George Newbern, who was on Scandal, Friends and CSI . He reads well but I don't remember seeing him as an actor.
Ove is a cranky and bitter man after he loses his wife. She was the only one who ever understood him.
He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse but behind him is a story and sadness. He doesn't want people in his life but people keep barging in and he can't escape their needs. It is a warm and funny story of love, with a happy but tearful ending. I think anyone would like it.
