Good Job...love the color.

Lake Charles, LA(Zone 9a)

thank you. I was really surprised it bloomed so fast, I was expecting another 3-4 weeks. Checked this morning and another bud is about to bloom as well.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Cool thing about roses...once they get started they just take off.

Lake Charles, LA(Zone 9a)

Yeah, the wife and I are giddy like a couple of kids in a candy store.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Amazing isn't it? Who'da thunk a flower could make ya so happy? GRIN

Lake Charles, LA(Zone 9a)

yeah, and the wife is even more giddy, some of her strawberries are getting ripe.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

How cool...the Ponchatoula Strawberry festival is this weekend...soon there will be berries everywhere.

Lake Charles, LA(Zone 9a)

We had a very happy Camphor tree at our old house in BR...every year the bluejays would show up to eat the fermenting berries....dark purple berries and a white car.....UGH. But they were so funny to watch because they would actually get a bit drunk from the berries and flap and squawk and flutter around the yard.

Lake Charles, LA(Zone 9a)

hahaha i'm picturing blue jays with rosey cheeks and hic-ups

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

I can tell you they are noisy drunks...grin

in louisiana, a quiet drunk is a very rare thing

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

There may even be a law against it...grin

Lake Charles, LA(Zone 9a)

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Lake Charles, LA(Zone 9a)

maybe i'll have to get a cardinal and hire him as a bouncer lol

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Might have to call in the buzzards...no one hangs out with them...grin. funny memory...when my oldest son was 3 or 4 he saw his first clutch of Buzzards. We told him the name and when we got to Granny's house he ran inside and told her all about the big bunch of BROUSSARDS he saw by the side of the road..She was a bit perplexed as that is her neighbor's last name.
