Chicago Peace Rose... Quotes...

Be faithful in the little practices of love which will build in you the life of holiness and make you Christlike. ~Mother Teresa
The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were not limitations to overcome. The hilltop would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse. ~Helen Keller
Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light. ~Theodore Roethke
This rose bloomed in my garden yesterday. It seems so early for the roses, but it's been very warm and so here they are.

Baby Trees...

These are some of the baby trees we've been planting over the weekend. The trees on the right are Chanticleer Pear Trees they get to be 40 feet high and they turn red in the fall.

They don't make pears...
The other little tree is a Betchel Crab which I love because of its pink blossoms in the spring. I hope they will do well, but this is our first time planting trees so I don't know what to expect.
