Week 41 Thursday (10/23/14)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:  Huevos Ree-os
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         I think this is like a southwest egg dish. I like breakfast for dinner and this recipe could probably pass for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I seem to like my spicier food in the evening.

Random Reflections - The Glorious Garden       
Sweetheart rose bush “Cecile Brunner”

The foliage is so glossy that it almost looks fake.

The bush takes my breath in the
mid summer when it spreads out.
       I love this rose bush. I found out about this bush from my best friend, Donna Dowd. She has wonderful sweetheart bushes on her front walkway, which I always admired. I did learn that they came from France in the 1800s. This bush can be shaped or it can spread out wide if it likes its location. The flowers are a soft pink color. Of course, I love this bush because pink is my favorite color. It is already October, and we’ve had a few frosts, and yet the bush is still blooming.
         I did learn that you prune the bush in the spring. I have always done that in the fall, so I am glad that I researched this plant. My bush is the middle of he backyard in full sun. The ground has great drainage, which is a real plus. I strongly recommend this bush. It is a whole lot easier to grow than long stem roses.

Irksome Ideas and Images

         I am irked at the cost of garbage stickers for Aurora. My can is usually about half full and I have to spend over $2.50 for the blasted sticker. I have been very fortunate, because Joe and Nicole have allowed me to put my half full garbage in their can. I wish everyone was lucky enough to have such thoughtful neighbors.
