    Hi Chris. It looks like the new rose is going to be a good one. I love fragrant roses so I welcome your opinion on new roses. I was looking at your new miniature rose Warm & Fuzzy. What a pretty little thing. I like those fuzzy’s on it. Unique. Great Poem too Chris. I forgot you moved to WordPress. I have it marked now so I can keep up on your roses now. LOL!
