Everywhere I go it seems I see explosions of color...the roses are in bloom! Perhaps it was the large amount of rain we received this year, perhaps something else, but it seems like there's more of an abundance of roses this year than in years prior. It's glorious!

Whenever I see roses I'm reminded of my father. He loved planting and growing roses, and had a pretty good green thumb for it. My mother definitely had a green thumb as well, which is why it puzzles me that my thumb seems to be the antithesis of green. I mean, I have third-party witnesses to the fact that I actually killed a fake plant. Sounds impossible, you say? Well, one day I got home and the floor was littered with the fake leaves. Mom had bought that plant for me, knowing that I wouldn't be able to do it in; little did she realize just how awful with plants I truly am! ;-)

I once housesat for my friend Dora. She blithely told me to water the plants while she was gone. She was gone for a couple of months. I faithfully watered the plants only to discover there were only real plants in the apartment. I ruined all of the fake ones as they were moldy by the time she returned. So, I completely understand. :)
