Welcome to February everyone. My roses are still dormant and will be for a while, but Winter Aconites and Snowdrops have started to bloom here. A sure sign spring is not too far away! Thumbs up

Beauty and hope, both, at the start of February. This promises to be a very good month for garden planning.

I was afraid "Kiss a Shark" might be represented by a blood-red rose. The choice is a beautiful relief.

Well, rose hybridizers appear to be very conservative when it comes to naming roses (unlike many iris hybridizers for example) and there just wasn't a rose named 'Blood and Gore' to go with the shark theme... Big Grin

Me, too. This is not an opportunity to be missed. Rolling my eyes. BTW, I'd like advance notice on Pizza for Breakfast day, too. If it's not too much trouble.

Steve .... I am not a rose gnome, but here is the basic recipe for a pizza frittata ... Hilarious! Hilarious! Since your wife is a vegetarian, she can leave any meat toppings out.

Lili ... this will work for any egg day ... Smiling

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

I love that Black Beauty rose!

Until someone names a rose Rosa Parks, your choice is definitely a best fit.
