Roses are more than red my love

Hosting a talk radio show like the PhilCast, based on a local guy talking about local and everyday 'stuff', gives me the opportunity to forge some wonderful partnerships with local businesses. In just over a year on the air we've made all kinds of friends with local advertisers.

We don't just 'air commercials' on the show, we chat with the people who run those businesses and learn all kinds of stuff about them and their products and services. And you know what I always tell listeners....you need to support those who support us....that's how this all works.

Yesterday on the show while talking to Joe at Van Zeeland's Nursery he was telling me about some beautiful roses in bloom there. These are some of the pictures he sent me.

Like I said during our chat, roses nowadays are so much more hearty than they used to be.

And the colors....

Wow.

More pictures....














This one has got to be one of my favorites.

I can hardly wait to get moved in and settled in next month.

Once the inside of the new house is unpacked it'll be time to start on some plants and landscaping outside.

And I know my friends Joe and Steve at Van Zeeland's will be getting a call. Because like I said, we need to support those who support the show.

One more thing today....
During the "Famous Dave's The Last" segment yesterday, caller Mike talked about the fairy garden he was doing with his kid. Fairy garden? Well, of course after I stopped giggling like a little girl over the name, he explained what it was to me. Mike also sent me a picture of it....
