A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose

February 11, 2013

Good morning.  I'm still at work, so I won't chat very long.  Mrs. will be waking soon and wanting her breakfast.  This morning we are expecting some snow and rain changing to all rain.  This will make for some pretty slippery driving and lots of ice.  Next weekend, we are expecting more snow for Saturday and Sunday.  Hmmm, we'll have to wait and see what that turns into.

Mississippi is being hit by one tornado after another, causing humongous damage.  Let's pray that the people come through okay.  It's a beautiful part of the country, but I could not live there and keep watching over my shoulder for the next tornado. 

Today, I have some photos to share that show Joe saving our yellow rose tree.  The weight of all the snow bent the tree over and flattened it up against the house.  Now that it is upright again, we're hoping it will be okay come Springtime.

Normally, when we get a lot of snow, my beautiful Red Japanese Maple tree gets weighted down to the ground with all the snow and we have to go out and shake the branches to rescue it.   This time, there was hardly a bit of snow anywhere on the tree.  Everything else got buried, but our beautiful tree was standing there snow free.  I'm thinking that we had a lot of help from our angels to save our tree.

Now for some previews of our February collab kit "A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose".  Here is my preview and download link.

Download here:


Here is Su's preview.  You'll want to hop on over to her site to pick up her parts.  While you're there, do take a moment to say Hello and Thank you.  It is so much appreciated.

Now I really must get back to work here.  Till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

We have had our rain and you are right, ice everywhere. Our snow is now hard and crusty ... not easy to run on as Izzi will tell you. Ane we have wind ... lots of wind. There are a lot of small branches from the trees laying in the yard (another Frisbee obstacle)... hopefully we won't lose any big limbs. We have in the past. We have big old (very old) oaks in the back and it worries me that they will come down when we have strong winds. I especially don't want that to happen while Izzi and I are out there.

Thank Heaven for Joe and your little angels. I lost my Japanese Maple a few years ago. I replaced it with a dwarf weeping red bud. It started out as a stick (I'm cheap, I won't pay $400. for a small already blooming tree). It has taken about four years, but we finally got buds on it last year. I am hoping it will be even better this year if all of the ice doesn't damage it. After last years mild winter, I feel like we are making up for it this year. But, spring is coming ... my little finchies are turning more yellow every day.

Love your February "A Rose is a Rose is a Rose". I am ready for some fresh, bright flowers ... winter grey has run it course for me. I know we are supposed to get more snow and our March is usually the worst month, but I am keeping my eyes focused on April ... Yes, we can get there. Well, I am going to let you go. I have been working on a Zentangle that was supposed to be done by last Saturday ... I can never just whip something up. Anyway, I am going to finish it and just post it on my blog. They are too much work (play) to not use them. I hope you make it through your long day okay. See you tomorrow ...

LOVE YELLOW ROSES...thank you for the lovely gift of the QPs.
So glad all survived that horrible NEMO. They are predicting ice for all of you for next weekend. Hope not! I thought "Phil" said winter was over...LOL!
We had the high winds (60+mph) with lots of hard rain yesterday morning that set off the tornadoes in Mississippi. They were bad coming in here, but just got worse as it traveled on through. So sorry for all in it's path. They are predicting snow for north Texas in next couple of days...we have been having 70+ degree temps for about 3 weeks now, so guess it is time to pay for it! LOL!
Well, got work to do, so gotta run for now, thanks for your visit!
Have a terrific Monday! Hugs, Mat

I'm so glad to hear that you guys made it through the blizzard ok. I was thinking of you and sending prayers your way. I love Japanese red maples and I'm glad that yours has survived to live another day! Have a wonderful week! Kelly xoxo

Such a pity if snow bends down trees and bushes too much, so they might break. Joe is a sweet guy, to help you this much.
Be careful with all the rain on the frozen streets, get home safely.
