A rose for me in Portland grows…

I had a stellar significant birthday.

Part of it involved a surprise visit from some Royal Rosarians (including the Prime Minister!), the ambassadors of the city of Portland and the mythical Realm of Rosaria. (Portland is the City of Roses.)


There were ceremonial speeches.



A rose was planted in my honor.


I got to shovel dirt.


Thanks to DH for arranging this very sweet surprise! And thanks to friend Susan for sharing her pictures.


Obligatory knit content: I was wearing my ruffle tank.

In other news, the Teen has been brewing his own ginger beer at home, resulting in his own 15 minutes of fame. Sweet!
