New Roses

Tue 17 Apr 2007

The last couple days have been absolutely gorgeous with the highs in the 60’s and 70’s so I’ve been out weeding and planting a few cheap roses I bought at Farm & Fleet. For $1.99 I don’t care if use them as annuals. Hopefully they will come back next year, but that’s really cheap for blooms. I picked up Queen Elizabeth, Angel Face, Sunny Delite, Camelot, Red Gold, Intrigue and John F. Kennedy.

Besides planting I’ve been doing a lot of ripping out. Naturalizing bulbs that I got with a Brecks sampler five years ago have been taking over my flower beds. I must have dug thousands of them and there are still so much more. Meanwhile I have this little black squirrel that follows me around everywhere and one of these days I’m sure he’s going to hop onto my back. I am at fault for offering it a peanut a couple days ago and I guess in return he’s decided to become my pocket pet. lol And I thought I would become one of those crazy old cat ladies. I call him my rat.

I’m going to create a new garden in the back part of our yard with some plants I need to move. Right now I’m in lawn negotiation with Cliff. I find it a bit confusing that someone who gripes & moans about taking care of the grass can so fiercely not want to give it up. I’m trying my best to help him out.
