Ever since Wednesday when our county lifted the ban on fireworks necessitated by the drought, our neighbors have been shooting off fireworks as soon as it gets dark each night. Apparently they saved some for New Year's Eve, however; it sounded like world war lll at midnight. Zuzu, your neighbors must be quieter.

I closed out the year sick as a dog. We have some wicked flu virus floating around here....after a week of continually getting worse, you start begging your spouse to smother you with a pillow. Alas, I survived! Good thing, too...I have 8 roses coming in March....four from Vintage and four from Heirloom. Wouldn't want to miss that!

Yes...I'm feeling much better, thanks! Just need to kick this awful cough, though! From Vintage I have Antoine Schurz, Duc de Marlborough, Mme. Eugene E. Marlitt, and something else that I cannot remember. My husband ordered them for me for Christmas last year, but they weren't due to arrive until this year. This Christmas he ordered from Heirloom: Josephine Ritter, Epoca, Acropolis, and Michelangelo. I'm terribly excited, but after hearing many bad reviews of Heirloom and even Vintage, I'm a little nervous.

Katie - A few years ago, I had the world's worst case of walking pneumonia and, after 3 weeks of a hacking cough that would keep me from sleeping, eating, resting, etc, I finally talked to the doc. He prescribed this really tasty cough syrup that was half codeine, half Robitussin. I was over the cough in 2 days... mainly because I fell asleep at about 730 on a Saturday morning & didn't wake up until almost 6pm the next day!

It is cold here so I don't have any new garden pictures. But at least once January comes around I feel we are really closing in on spring.

I'd love the pleasant surprise that Ohio weather miraculously becomes California weather. It's a lovely 11 degrees here this morning. I am SO moving to NoCal.

Katie - lolll.. 3.7deg this morning at 730.. "supposed" to go up to 36. I doubt we'll see above 20. Norms are in the 40s. We've got Feb weather a month early. Maybe that'll bring on the snow early too? I'd love to see some March snow right about now!!

You can have our snow!! We have lots....plenty to share!! Ok, I guess I shouldn't be complaining about the snow. It IS protecting the roses, after all. Hmmph.
