Take time and smell the roses. Roses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states.
It is a good idea to have a tetanus shot at least every ten years, although for those of us who are always working in the soil, five years is probably preferable. We all work in the garden and sometimes get stuck with thorns which makes having tetanus shots very important. Tetanus is a soil born bacteria that can have some rather unpleasant symptoms and cause very serious problems, and nobody need those. Since there is not a lot going on in the garden now, please call the doctor and make your appointment.
