I spent all day yesterday (Monday) with Donald, the cemetery's Grounds Foreman, chipping away at the rose list. We visited and evaluated and tagged 46 roses. This is in addition to the 49 that The Husband and I did last month. I feel a lot less stress about this now, since we have made so much progress in such a short amount of time.
I saw this Robin as I was leaving for the day yesterday. He sat there while I rolled down my car window and snapped this photo with my iPhone. I guess he was enjoying the sunshine, too.
I am hitting the road again today, for my final day of on site preparations. There are 30 more roses left on the list to be located and evaluated ... I hope it doesn't take me all day to do this, because there are a couple of junk shops that I'd like to hit on my way home, as well as a quick stop at Trader Joes for stuff.
Wish me luck.
