Been trying to get on last night and today. Good to see forum up and running again.

Roses were already collaged, would have to go through all the rhodo's to do that, so my contribution to the soup is The Rose

Sharon, your beautiful rhodies and a road trip were being discussed at NSAC Friends of the Garden today. But as I have said before, that group and herding cats have a lot in common.
