My newly planted roses are starting to bloom. I took this shot of Queen Elizabeth, my favorite rose in my garden. I planted three of them. I don't have many roses blooming yet, so I savor every bloom! My mom was here recently. She visited for 5 weeks! We had so much fun. She had never been to the South before. Here are pictures of our cruise on the General Jackson. It's a paddle wheel river boat. It was a three hour cruise with lunch and a show. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Nashville.
