I went for my walk this AM around 6:45 and I thought wow it seems pretty darn warm compared to yesterday morning around the same time. When I got back, my husband asked how it was and I said if you going on one of your 20 mile bike rides you better get out their now. So he headed out and I decided to plant the 3 gallon rose bush I won.
Ok this is where the digging of the hole for the rose bush turned into a battle. I hit a rock that seemed like a bolder. Ultimately I got this 2 foot by 1 foot by 6 inch pain out. Of course now it is about 80 degrees, and humid, but the rose was positioned and gently watered.
Now I am in the house drinking ice tea at 8:45 am. I typically do not drink tea at this time of the day, but it certainly hit the spot.
