RE: roses & "stuff"


I haven't been to San Anton' or Corpus yet either. Someday. I need to
get down to Wildseed Farms in Fredericksberg too! And the heat's ok by
me. I work outside all day in the garden - even in August. Most people
go in around 11 or so - not me. I just don't get hot. Pat watches me out
her window and thinks I'm nuts. Love it. The only thing I don't like is
having to spray the roses every week just after daybreak, because you
can't do it when it gets over 85. Considering I do 3 yards worth (about
50 roses or more) you really have to hustle in the summer.

oh well - that's the price I pay for the heat that I love.

Pam
