Roses are Red

Dear Mom,
Roses are red...

and yellow...

and pink...

and amber...

The first spring blooms are the most beautiful. The Japanese beetles will soon arrive and you can see that some of the foliage is already being eaten by some sneaky, camouflaged bugs. I am still waiting on blooms from the white roses; I never noticed, but I wonder if they always bloom later than the others.

Since the chickens love to eat Japanese beetles, I might have the guys around here devise some sort of trap to catch them inside the chicken run. If we could just get the beetles to fall into a bucket of water, then the chickens would have a constant supply to snack on!!

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And so are you!

Love, Bonnie Jo
