A Good Year for the Roses

What a good year for the roses
Many blooms still linger there
The lawn could stand another mowin’
Funny I don’t even care

It was a good year for roses at the Granger house, despite the neglect I visited on them. They all did well, except for the Julia Childs in the front hedge, which was somewhat overtaken by the grass. Hopefully, it will recover.

The good news is that I finally closed on the house today. I should have cash in the bank tomorrow and several fewer bills to pay each month. This chapter is finally over.
