Are you all snowed under and hibernating? All the world was white with frost here this morning, but it soon melted in the sun and I spent some time weeding the roses in the late morning. Some of them have more foliage now than in summer.

I'm here, but I'm staying silent because I don't want to make all of you cry. The temperature here today was 74 degrees. I've been working in the garden all day every day for the last week and a half. I wear a jacket over my dress out of habit, but as soon as I start working, I get so hot that I have to take the jacket off. It's positively glorious here this January! It's hard to believe that winter probably will come back any day now. I hope it doesn't, but this is just too good to be true. The temperature projections for the coming week are lower, but still not too bad -- in the high 60s.

Frigid here.

I am, for the most part, staying inside and searching for plants. I found one 'Easy Elegance' rose; that's it so far for those. Are they fairly difficult to find, or do I just not know where to look?

I'm here too!
My Mom and I have been trimming up a few of the roses, still have several more to do. We're even bringing blooms inside for the kitchen vases. I bought 10 cheerful primroses the other day and put a container together for us to see from our bedroom window. I also bought 3 bare root fruit trees along with my favorite rose, Eureka and potted them up. Had to leave that rose behind when we sold the house so I was on the lookout for getting that replaced.
We are currently up in No. Calif. visiting with the grand kids, they have a bit of patchy snow on the ground at their 3500 ft elevation but it's nice and sunny.
Still in final negotiations for our house, either it's a go for closing next month or the seller stalls and forces it into foreclosure if he doesn't agree to our latest addendum. Glare

You mean finding roses online Chelle?

All the Costcos down here have had their double boxed roses in for weeks now, they look pretty dry by now. I have an order coming in next month from Pickering http://pickeringnurseries.com/

You piqued my curiosity by finding Easy Elegance, Chelle, which I don't remember ever finding anywhere. It's not listed on HMF. Is it a whole line of roses?

It's somewhat cooler today than it was yesterday, but certainly not cold.

I love this group of roses. I purchased my Centennial rose as one of the Easy Elegance line.

Here's the only one I've found that's not sold out; at least for the moment! Smiling

Oh, I actually have one of these -- Kiss Me. It's huge and trouble-free.

Sue, the only place that sells these within 50 miles of my house, according to their Website, is in Vacaville. I've never even been there. I might have been put off by the name: "Cow Town"? Confused

Well it was a chilly 54 here today. Spent the day cutting back roses and planting bulbs. Last weekend we were at Wally world and browsing the bulb clearances in Daffodils. All the bags rang up 2cents each. Needless to say we ran back and filled the buggy. Now to plant the other 100 of so tomorrow. Don't you just love a great sale or mistag. Almost felt guilty.

Well, they carry them at SummerWinds here so if you want something Zuzu, let me know. All the roses there are 20% off right right now although I don't recognize any of the names.

Summerwinds is amazing. If you go by there, Sue, and they have Centennial and Sunrise Sunset, please get them for me.

These are all Ping Lim roses. I really love his roses. He created three of my favorites -- Funny Face, Love and Peace, and Rainbow Sorbet. I also have Fiesta and Kiss Me, which are great, but they aren't favorites. The one I really want, but haven't been able to find, is Orange Impressionist:

They claim that I can find them (Easy Elegance) at Home Depot near me - NOT!

That is odd, Porkpal, because there are several Home Depot stores within 50 miles of my house, but they didn't list Home Depot in my results.

Sue, another rose I've decided I need is Classic Woman, in case you run into it while you're out. I saw a bouquet of them at GVR and they look like big peonies. Gorgeous!

http://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.43461&tab=36

Actually, I'm sure I can get it at GVR when the new bare-roots come in, so don't go to any trouble to find it. Just in case it's at Summerwinds and 20% off, then I want it. I love Meilland's Romantica roses.

Oh, that is a pretty one! I can imagine it was a beautiful bouquet!
I'll keep my eye out for the other two then.

I post enough to annoy everyone, so that's why I haven't been online as much.. figured that I annoyed everyone enough already considering I'm online from 8am to 430pm every M-Th.. bleh. And it's been cold & annoying.. got like 3" of new snow, but, again it was the damned powder, which isn't good for anything. Not to mention last weekend DH was sicker than anything, then this past week I was down for 3 days (vomited 9 times in about 9 hours.. from 9pm to 630am.. yuck, last time was black-green yuck. Yes, I know, TMI.) Then this weekend I've been busy getting my house cleaned (the number of cats & dogs can definitely do a number in when both humans are sick), remodeling the downstairs (again)... ai yi yi yi yi. Be glad when spring shows up (soon! Maples are starting to develop the fruit & aspens are starting to "fuzzy") so I can just work outside instead of inside! Had windows open today even though the high was like only 40 degs.. but had to air out the house (getting squirrelly). Waiting patiently (NOT!) for local garden centers to start getting plants (another 3 months.. April). *sigh*

I'm tired. :(

It is 1'F right now. We have had snow and ice on and off the past week. Typical for January, but not fun. At least the roses are protected by their winter protection and snow.

I store peat moss and potting mix outside in plastic bags inside of sealed plastic garbage cans. I had to wheel them inside to defrost in order to prepare my containers for wintersown seeds.

You have never annoyed me, Toni, and I'm sure you don't annoy anyone else. That black-green yuck happens after your stomach is completely empty. I hate that!!!! It hurts!

I shudder to think what you must pay for heat in the winter, Toni and Andi.
