The Pope John Paul II rosebush has bloomed! Waiting for it to bloom was almost as stressful as waiting to see if chicks would hatch. :o) Thankfully, it didn't disappoint--especially because our guests were able to see it bloom before they left today. Hubbie and i are totally enamoured--it has a *glorious* scent--like the rosewater that a Great Aunt or Great Grandma might wear, but oddly, not as offensive. The cream colour is amazingly hyponotic!
Viva Il Papa!
i received a new camera for my birthday.
It's mind-blowing in that i can filter colours within the camera like this:
It will come in especially handy as i start a new collection of photos of religious statues. Like this one i took of the Sacred Heart. Must take next picture of this filtering everything but red.
