I was unpacking
some boxes that I had packed
for our move to this farm 16 years ago
and had not,
for a variety of reasons, unpacked since.... when I came across.......
I remember seeing it first
when I came as a new bride to hubbie's family farm.
I liked it when I saw it
and, although it didn't work,
I used it as an ornament.
I had wondered where it was
and thought that I had left it at the home farm
until I found it last week
Hubby was so pleased to see it
and we shared many remembrances
of where it used to be in his mother's day.
He even tried his mother's old way of
getting it to work but, alas,
it only went for 3 hours before stopping!
I love the roses on it
and so shall continue to use it
as an ornament!
I intended to write a post about it last week
but ended up in hospital last Friday
while they tried to sort out my pain meds and also tried a procedure to help.
I only returned home yesterday afternoon.
When I looked outside this morning
it was to see that my favourite
had started to flower.
that it had to be in the picture as well
Now its scent is filling the house!!
