Welcome to a little Halloween in August and another installment of Rod and Rowena’s adventures!
In case you need one, here’s a refresher:
Rod and Rowena are the skeleton crew at Hawthorne Gardens
where Rod is the Master Gardener.
Rod and Rowena came out of the closet early this year to to lend a hand
and help with the deadheading, watering, weeding around the Potting Shed.
Rod enjoys the fresh air and working outdoors as his doctor
told him the sunshine and Vitamin D is good for his bones.
Rowena has a passion for flowers and loves to set a pretty table!
Rod and Rowena’s anniversary is later this month so she pulled out her wedding china
in celebration and for some alfresco dining.
Rowena was all aflutter over the Limelight Hydrangeas in bloom. . .
She cut some hydrangeas for a centerpiece for the table.
Rod and Rowena are both wine enthusiasts and
enjoy a tipple with lunch or in the afternoon.
Rod doesn’t have a lazy bone in his body and Rowena had to talk him
into taking a break from his gardening chores. . .
Once Rowena laid down the law and told him there will be no weeding
during drinking hours, he was able to kick back and relax.
Rowena’s motto is ‘Wine is Cheaper than Therapy’. . .
Rod recommends Hob Nob Wicked Chardonnay for an afternoon tipple . . .
He can’t hold his drink like he used to, but finds it refreshing and bright, with
a present vanilla forward taste with flavors of tropical fruit, pear, and hazelnut.
It’s medium in body with creamy oak that leaves a delightful finish!
Meet Bona Lisa, who they recently adopted from the local shelter.
Bona Lisa is a happy pup who loves her bones and treats!
