|I got Hot Cocoa for $5 each,|
but now the suppliers are out of stock.
A member sent me a write-up on Hot Cocoa, "a striking and disease resistant" floribunda rose. That sounded familiar. I looked it up - no longer in stock anywhere. Then I remembered that oddly named rose I got for $5 from Gurney's, when they sell the extra roses from Week's Roses. I ordered 10 of them twice for a total of 20 roses for $100.
Those roses are the ones around the maple tree, because Mrs. Ichabod wanted them there. I flailed at maple roots for hours to get the first 10 in. This year we transplanted the other 10, and everyone is deliriously happy about the results.
