A White Rose From Our Garden...



Here is a white rose from our garden to you.  I took this photograph a couple of weeks ago.  There's something about white flowers that make them especially compelling to me to paint and take photos of.

Alex and I are going to donate some stuff to the Union Rescue Mission later today.  It's a great place to donate to.  They're a women's and children's shelter and they also give donated items to the local community.  When I donate there, I feel like what I am giving will get a great second life.  This will be our last donation for the year.  We haven't donated as much this year as last year, but hopefully in the next year we will improve upon this year.
