Delayed Gratification

Great pleasure dividends is one compelling reason 
to plant spring bulbs now.
A lush spring garden is proof positive that life marches on 
even after a long dreary winter.
 The abundance in the variety of bulbs is generous, 
there is so much to choose from.

This is Sicilian Honey Garlic ( Allium siculum Ucria) of the Allium family.

A Thorny Issue-Pride

One reason to celebrate this Easy Elegance rose today 
is that it has been going strong since June-incredible really.
And, it has been free of disease during its entire bloom period.

 This rose-Macy's Pride was selected to mark
the department store retailer's centennial.
