A Very Happy Lady enjoying our COOL Weather early one morning 
Hi There from WONDERFUL Tennessee.   We have had some cooler, less humid and AWESOME weather the past few days...  The picture above was taken one early morning when George and I were enjoying some special time on our deck...  The temperature that morning was about 57 degrees. That is why I was dressed in my sweats and even had a blanket, some hot tea,  and my Sweetheart to keep me warm!!!!!    Gotta Love It!!!!!!

I had been contemplating as to what to write for this week's blog post...  There were lots of possibilities  (Mammoth Cave Trip,  Pisgah Inn Trip,  and more Day Lilies)...  I just couldn't come up with one that I wanted to do...  SO---what did I do instead????????   I went outside  and 'walked-the-yard'.... WOW---we have had a burst of color and our Roses are showing off all of their beauty.   (I am sure that the Roses enjoyed the cooler weather also!!!!)

SO-------my blog post this week is all about our ROSES....   I took ALL of these pictures on 8/25/18...  Hope you enjoy the burst of colors today!!!!  Some are still in bud form;  some are partially open;  some are almost finished blooming.  But---I hope you enjoy each and every one of them.
