For the first time in [redacted] years that I’ve lived in or visited Redquarters, you can smell the yard. The roses have exploded, the Salvia and other native plants are going great guns, and the place looks like the plant catalogues say it is supposed to.
I have no idea how long it will be before we get another spring like this one, but thanks be we’ve got it. Remember that overgrown side yard? It looks like a pink and white arbor. Which is wonderful until you try to mow the grass. Did I mention that roses have thorns?
But thanks be that the thorns have roses!
