Thank you very kindly for your awfully sweet responses to my new book announcement! Your comments were so kind, and it's really nice to have spilled the beans on something that has been so important behind-the-scenes. I poured a lot into the little tales of Oddfellow's, trying to make what is pretty much my ideal place. I hope it feels cozy and welcoming to all of you come January!
To show my gratitude, here is a snap of a jar-full of my #1 favorite roses in my garden...
They're Carding Mill English roses, and they really do a number on me. I love the colors they bloom in (all creamy apricots and coral-pinks), their size (fairly petite) and maybe most of all, the way their paper-y petals often have slightly ragamuffin edges.
Anyway, clearly I'm under some of rose-hypnosis.
Thank you again for your kind words re: the book, and happy weekend to you!!
