Thirty Days of Thanksgiving: Day 8, the view in my dining room

Yes, I'm behind on these.  But I am determined to catch up and finish!  It is true that I've been busy (oh my goodness, is there a LOT to learn in nursing school!) but I've also watched my share of Dancing with the Stars, so I could have been updating (especially since most of these have been written, they just needed pictures).  It's just that, when I get behind on something, I'm not always sure how to get back in front of it.  The answer is, of course, just to start.  So here I am, starting again.  At Day 8.

And what I am thankful for today is the view in my dining room window.
You can't see it clearly in this picture because of the glare on the window, but there are two rose bushes out there.  We planted them the first summer we were here, three years ago.  They are called Knockout Roses, and I highly recommend them.  They have grown so well!  They are up to the second window pane on the window, and the house is about three steps up from the ground.  I think they are over five feet tall now.  I love sitting at the table in the morning, drinking my coffee and seeing the rose bushes.  They make me really happy.


  1. I agree, that is a beautiful view--inside and out! I love your plants. :)

    1. Thank you so much! I love having plants in any room with a window. I think it brings a bit of extra life to the room.
