How did September go by so fast?? Is it just me or did the month zip by at record speed? Maybe it's because school started, but whoa, let's slow the rest of the year down a bit, shall we.
Saturday was a beautiful day here in Nebraska -- lovely warm and sunny weather! It was so nice, especially after Maddy and I got totally soaking wet at the University's homecoming parade the night before. Seriously, my hair was plastered down and dripping! We got caught in a major rainstorm! OY!!
So, Saturday we headed to our local sunken garden to enjoy its flowery goodness. A cute young couple decided to get married there and the place was packed. So, we went to a Rose Garden that our city recently developed instead.
Oh. My. Goodness -- it was so beautiful and smelled so good -- I'd forgotten how fragrant roses can be! While there, we looked for a very special bench. A sweet little old lady neighbor of ours died a few years ago and her family put a bench in the Rose Garden in her name.
Seems especially fitting since her daughter is one of the City's gardeners working on both the Sunken Garden and the Rose Garden. I know Marie would be so proud of all of her daughters and her sweet bench at the Rose Garden.
