More Roses

Double Knockouts
We planted five more red rose bushes a few days ago. We had a small “problem area” between our sidewalk and the driveway that was in poor condition. We ripped up the ground cover that was planted there and started over with some rose bushes. I think they will be looking real good by next year. Here’s a picture.


Update - Easter Egg Plants
These plants are amazing. One on the plants has eight eggs and it is still blooming. Here’s a picture. Can you count the 8 eggs?


This picture shows one of the larger eggs. I think they will get even larger, then they will go through phases of color change.

The eggs will be full of seeds if we want to plant some next year.

Quote of the Day
Instead of complaining that the rosebush is full of thorns, be happy that the thorn bush has roses.

Joke of the Day

Differences Between Men and Women

If Mary, Susan, Claire and Barbara go out for lunch, they will call each other Mary, Susan, Claire and Barbara.

If John, Brad, Tony and Daniel go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Bruno, Scrappy, Peanut-Head and Godzilla.

Eating Out
When the bill arrives, John, Brad, Tony and Daniel will each throw in $20, even though the total is only $34.25. None of them will have any smaller bills and none will admit they want change back.

When Mary, Susan, Claire and Barbara get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

A man will pay $10 for a $5 item he needs.

A woman will pay $5 for a $10 item that she doesn't need, because it's on sale.

A man has five items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, razor, shaving cream, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Motel 6.

The average number of items in a woman's bathroom is 328. The average man would not be able to identify most of them.

What a pleasure walking your yard today. The roses will flourish there, so long as they don't get winter salt on them. And the Easter Egg plant, my Mother used to grow them. Thanks for the fond memory.

As for Men and Women, Right On!

I never pray for a million, but I do pray that my dollar will stretch throughout my week. God always sees that it does.

My thorns have roses too. I'm thankful.
