Bad Gardener

I have been so neglectful of my gardens and this journal lately. A comment prompted me to update.

My gardens are all full of weeds and Japanese beetles! It's been so hot, and I've been so lazy. I vow to get out there soon and create some beauty. Or something.

The above rose is one I've been waiting on for two years now. It's finally for sale in 2007. I've preordered, of course. Isn't it beautiful? I have a thing for orange/yellow/apricot roses.
