We're only a few days from our first rose 'flush'. To people like myself who love roses, this is a big deal. Pictures to follow.
I mentioned previously that I took a page from the book of Betsy and George and planted a few roses in pots, and am excited about these as well.
There are a few pioneer blooms, too. This is a cabbage rose.And this is a hybrid tea called A Touch Of Class.
I am overwhelmed with sadness about the horrid destruction in the heartland of our country. When I see these loses, I realize my troubles are trivial ones. I wonder...does new construction in this part of the country mandate 'safe' areas like storm cellars or safe rooms? These wouldn't abate the destruction, but they would probably save a lot of lives.
And on a completely ludicrous note, when are people simply going to ignore the likes of Harold Camping and his predictions? People actually sent him money and some even began having their pets euthanized. The stupidity of mankind astounds me. How different are his prophecies than the promise of 72
vegans virgins? He's just another Jim Jones, but with a radio station.
