Am I so mean that you had to do this?
I took this picture yesterday of my new roses. It's a Jackson & Perkins variety called Rock and Roll. I love the red and white variegated petals. They remind me of a peppermint geranium I had as a young girl.
I try and make the best of the crummy ground in which I plant my garden. And I hate it when those around me don't seem to care about their yards.
Yesterday I kindly asked the neighbor tween-age girls who were hanging out at the end of the driveway if they would please pick up the trash they left lying around the yard. I even provided them with the garbage can.
Then I asked them to not hang out at the community mailbox so that the neighbors could easily come and get their mail.
And now this is the thanks I get. Someone yanked all the blossoms off my roses.
Dear Neighbor Girl, I hope the thorns poked your naughty little fingers.
