blue roses

I've been hanging with my Blue Roses a lot lately since I can drive again. Four of us gathered in Mystic at Libby's bright new yellow apartment right after my surgery. Here is Alvina, Libby, and Anna on the Mystic bridge.

I am very lucky to have these women in my life. I'm ever amazed by the support, inspiration and friendship that is shared among these six very different people. The Blue Rose roots started in children's book publishing but have grown much deeper then any group or club.

Alvina posted about me and my secret scarabs on the Blue Rose Blog. I was wondering why this discreet blog suddenly got so popular. Anyone who knows Alvina can imagine how especially flattering it is to be written about by her.
