>Here I am sitting at my breakfast room table up to my elbows in seed and rose catalogs and hoping for an early spring. I can’t believe some of the claims these catalog folks make. A blue rose????
It was a warm fall in Alabama. Thus far, January has been cold. We are getting quite a bit of rain, which we need desperately. The drought of 2007 left us in a terrible state. And we welcome the precipitation. The new roses I planted in late summer seem to be making it throught the winter well. I am looking forward to seeing their progress on a second year of growth and bloom.
I already have plans to add to my collection of roses and am looking forward to Birmingham’s annual rose show and exhibition coming up on May 10 & 11. My wife wants to know where we are going to put them. I told her we would make room. We always do.
