Watercolor Rose For Gramma Mary

Today we are celebrating my Gramma Mary's 94th Birthday!! 
A simple rose for an amazing woman!
We are blessed to have her still with us.
Two years ago she decided to retire from being a licensed beautician, mostly due to her clients passing on. And this year, a malfunctioning heart valve has slowed her down tremendously. She decided not to get the valve replaced and let nature take it's course. God Bless Her!  No gardening for her this year:(   Gramma is known for her home grown pickled beets. 
Yes, I have the recipe:)) Unfortunately her canning skills did not get past on through the genes. Only her love of good Italian food, and taking life as it comes with a Smile and a great attitude! 
We are all grateful for Gramma Mary's possessive outlook on everything:)

Happy Birthday Gramma Mary!

Just in case you were thinking that Gramma is misspelled, which for me it very well could be,..
The double M is the Italian way of spelling mama,  hence the mamma in my email address as well.
