Love having sunflowers in the garden
Can't wait for these buds to open.
It hasn't flowered for a few years and from memory
they are large white flowers and I think they may open at night.
I can't believe we are at the end of January already. I haven't been here since the end of September. I didn't mean for it to be so long, I kept thinking I want to add some photos and write a post but they just never happened. I can't even remember what happened between the end of September and the end of December.
What I do know is we have had a happy and a sad start to 2015. The good news is eldest teen was accepted into University and starts next month. Youngest teen started a mechanical apprenticeship last week. I am very proud of both of my children and so happy and thankful they are able to follow their dreams.
Now onto our very sad news. On the 5th January we had to say goodbye to our beautiful boy BJ. He has brought so much love and joy to our family over the twelve years that he was a part of our family. He was eighteen months old when he came to live with us and was the most lovable goofball. Both the kids were sad when we had to say goodbye and they miss him, but it has hit me much harder. BJ was my constant companion, he was never far away from me when we were inside and always by my side out in the garden. I miss him so very very much.
I have started a new garden bed for BJ. I wanted to plant a rose for him and found this beautiful white rose called 'Guardian Angel'. I have a garden seat there and a couple more roses as well as a few other flowers. It is a work in progress, but I wanted a nice spot to sit in the garden to remember my best friend,
