Those are very pretty Ron : ) I have red ones that are trying their best to take over.

I once got into a whole parcel of trouble having liberated some fine examples from the rose hedges about the Michigan State University Experiment station in South Haven to impress a pretty girl.
The lovely young lass accepted my gift graciously. Her Ma condemned me a criminal having stolen them form somewhere. Trying to make amends I acknowledged my misdeed and vowed never to do it again. Lot of good it did. The old bag only carried the whole episode on further adding volume to her ranting. Toughly disgusted with her attitude taking her innocent child by here hand I spirited the pretty young lady away.
Next day, my conscience so elevated to a state of dire guilt, I stopped by the station admitting the theft ready to receive and stand my punishment. Low`n’behold the care taker suggested me and my friends were welcome to all we desired to cut and enjoy. The cussed hedges where well beyond the grounds keepers hourly abilities to keep up with their trimmings.
What a doubled whammied let down. Called a thief, and then openly welcomed to commit more skullduggery. For some reason, there was no more thrills in the original and certainly no enjoyment or gratitude upon the second part.
I gave up. And found myself a marked man with a contract on my life.

My Father was once accused of taking flowers from a cemetary to my sister who was at a nearby hospital. It was my Mother that did the accusing!

Very nice, Ron.
Do you know the name of that purple climber?
My daughter keeps asking me to find a purple one for her.
That one is very pretty.

Thank you Lenore but I do not know the name of them. They were growing here when we got the place. And I second your question of last week, Where is Daylily William?

Well darn Ron you are supposed to know the names of your roses!!
I may kidnap that picture and take it to a rose site I know, and ask them.

I got to thinking of Daylily William and decided maybe his lilies are not blooming yet; mine aren't. So maybe when they do, he will think of us all and share them again.
