Friday!

honey-kennedy-deborah-turbeville-bath-house-01

Hello! Happy Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’m laying low while recovering from a terrible cold. I’m hoping to get a burst of energy to get out into the garden and do some gardening and rose pruning, but we’ll see. I’m working on some special rose posts if any of you have been interested in growing some of the beauties you’ve seen on my instagram feed. I’ll go over my experience and current favorites. I’m hoping to help you to not feel intimidated and go for it — it’s so rewarding. Anyways, back to tea, blankets, and Victoria. And Riverdale (don’t judge — it’s so dark and weird for Archie!). xo Jen
