It's actually been a productive year on the rose front. I've learned alot and traveled farther in my knowledge of how to care for the to get great results.
My biggest learning was: Roses are a lot like pets. You need to feed and water them very regularly and I admit I failed in the past on this front...But this year they rewarded my new efforts.
Now if I can keep said roses from being run over by a said mower I will be batting 1000.
And speaking of baseball terminology, I was thinking the other day of how baseball (Go Bosox!) and my garden had some similarities...
More specifically how my roses were similar to the players (go Bosox!).
I have a Dustin Pedroia: performs all the time-a workhorse
I have a JD Drew: when it blooms it's just at the right time and it's beautiful.
I even have a Jacoby Ellsbury: diminuitive in stature but when it performs it performs big...
So as the manager of this ball club I'm going to keep being more hands on... Here are a few of my players... JD Drew and Jacoby Ellsbury.
Oh and GO Bosox!!!!
