This is a hybrid tea rose called Granada. It is one of my new roses and is a spectacular bloom, at least to my eye.
It's back to work today. Mrs. Sneed gets custody of Noah for the next two days. He is fun to have around except that I'm forced to watch PBSkids Sprout nonstop and he makes a mess of everything. I recall being much more tidy as a child.
I took a bunch of junk out of the backyard yesterday and put it out on the curb. Unlike many cities where the garbagemen actually will pick up large items, we are restricted to what will go into the garbage can. Twice a year the city picks up bulky items and tree limbs, brush and other large yard waste. Our spring pickup is next week.
Among the items that I put out were an old Webber grill and a large wrought iron plant stand. This morning anything that was metal or contained large amounts of metal, was gone. We have quite a number of people who patrol during bulky pickup time and take whatever can be recycled. I think that is a win-win for everyone.
Even things that are still reusable, like old furniture items get taken, mostly for use in Mexico, I think. Better than going to the dump.
Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky
