PINK VASE AND RED ROSES – Marilyn Armstrong

Pink Vase With Red Anniversary Roses

Today was beautiful. Yesterday was friends, food, and too many desserts. And today is equally lovely. I’m glad because Florence very slowly coming up the Atlantic coast. By the end of the week, it’s going to be a mess. They aren’t expecting the kind of rain they are getting in the Carolinas, but it will be a lot.

With our rivers already full, four or more inches of rain will mean flooding all over the valley.

That’s the thing about living in a river valley. We are a dip in the geography waiting for rain. Born for water, there’s nowhere in the valley you can live where you are far enough from a river to not be in danger of flooding. Even when you can’t see the river, it’s there. Behind the trees, behind the ridge. On the other side of the railroad tracks.

Meanwhile, I’ve decided I don’t really need a gas stove.

  1. Beautiful Shot Marilyn! 🙂

    We’ve been hearing quite a bit of bad news coming from Mass and the East Cost of the US down under. Good to hear you and Garry have not yet had much direct effect!. I’m hoping it stays that way as long as possible. Stay Safe!
