Well, wonder of wonders...today I found out from my boss that I was doing way more work than I had to!!! I am able to utilize more of the resources available to assist me later in the day so that I can finish up everything I need to and still get home at a reasonable hour!!! Glory be! I nearly cried...I wanted to...since I have been working way over an 8 hour day and with a 1 hour drive each way!!! I feel such relief now!
Well, being as she sent me home early today, I went shopping at a new nursery I had been wanting to visit...called ART BY NATURE, in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It was incredible! The gal there, named Jackie was so helpful and so nice. I bought 4 things! I had gone to see if they had any Rugosa roses, which she did not...but she showed me a large (in a big pot) Drift rose, called Meijocos! Here is a pic from a website @ The Conard-Pyle Company. They are so old fashioned looking, and similar in style to the Rugosa. It is already about 1.5 ft. tall, and 2.5 ft. wide! Perfect for one of my tires. Oh, and she gave it to me for half price...marked 18, I paid 9! See below:
Next she had three small gardenias! I had been thinking about planting one outside of a window that I might open more to let the heavenly scent in...so I bought 3! I couldn't resist.

I will show pics tomorrow after I get them planted. The leaves are dark green and the plants look like visions of health! I have to pic a good spot, because she said they will do best with protection from the afternoon sun...I hard thing to find here...
Oh, BTW...in honor of the Royal Wedding today, we went out and ate British food tonight! I had Shepherds Pie, and DIL had Fish n Chips! My husband had prime rib...does that count??? The wedding was so beautiful, and I am so happy for them!
TGIF! I am so ready for 2 days off! Hope everyone has a fun weekend!
