Roses, Antique Mall, Wild Strawberries & the Uke

My Mother's Day roses

Not only were my Mother’s Day roses beautiful, but they also have that sweet, old time rose fragrance.  I bury my nose in them every time I pass them.  I think these were the prettiest roses I’ve ever received.  They were beautiful before they opened, but I like them even better now.

After my dental appointment today, we stopped by the antique mall.  I was looking for a

Aren't they gorgeous? 🙂

very special teacup and saucer to pamper myself with.  I didn’t find any teacups I liked, but I saw these mugs and I was smitten.  I love old fashioned romantic rose patterns.  Drinking my morning coffee in these will be a real pleasure.

When I got home, I walked around the perimeter of our property and found the wild strawberries and Indian strawberries are ripe.  The wild strawberries have an exquisite flavor.  The Indian strawberries are edible, but tasteless.

Unfortunately, the Indian strawberries are thriving and spreading, but the wild strawberries seem to be losing ground.  There aren’t as many plants this year as there have been in previous years.

About the ukulele — I am getting really weary of playing scales and songs like Are You Sleeping and Wildwood Flower.  I’m mixing in some chording and playing by ear to keep from getting too bored.

But I really need the practice reading notes, so I’ll finish plowing through this book.  Then I can start the fingerpicking book, which should be a lot of fun.
