Roses in December


It's supposed to freeze tonight. Today it's misting rain, very dreary. I picked the last rose buds: 2 'Peace' and one bud each of 'Queen Elizabeth' 'Sombreuil' 'Gene Boerner' and 'Knockout' to fill a vase on the kitchen windowsill.

Today is the 70th Anniversary of Daddy Senior's parents. We have a cigar box full of letters they wrote during their courtship, when there were no telephones in the country. Postage stamps went from 2 cents to 3 cents sometime during 1937.

Maybe you should post some of those letters. I'll bet they are a great window on the world at that time.
