I was given some roses for my birthday, and they're trying to look yucky now. I think I'm going to go herbicidal on them and send them on to the big compost in the sky.
Incidently, these were the first long-stem roses that I've ever received.
Also, incidently, they weren't from The Hater. They were from my supervisor and her husband.
The Hater has no comment.
In a couple of weeks I'll get some flowers to set out on the deck. I think this year I'm going to purchase a strawberry pot and fill it with hens and chicks, too. I'll probably go with asparagus fern and ornamental pepper plants again... but the last pot -- I've got several choices, but don't know what I want to try for the hot, hot, hot all-day sun. Our porch is a warm, toasty place to be during the summer.
