Sometimes There Are Surprises in the Mail!

I had every intention of doing this post sooner.  You will see why I say that later.  The Herbal Husband is an Ebay buyer.  He gets purchases from everywhere.  Several weeks ago, he received something from Denver, Colorado and the seller was nice enough to wrap it in this supplement to The Denver Post.  Since I have readers from everywhere in the world and maybe 1 or 2 from Colorado, I wanted to give you the link to Betty Cahill's article called A Rose by Any Other Name?  Call It an Herb.  She has a lot of good links in the article including a  rose recipe or two from the International Herb Association.  I always find good cultural information in every extension office website offered and there is a link to Colorado State University extension publications about Selecting and Planting Roses in Colorado.  Ms. Cahill talks about Colorado having four native species roses:  Rosa acicularis, Rosa arkansana, Rosa stellata and Rosa woodsii.  The final piece of information was about a tour of a rose collection at Fairmount Cemetery on June 9, 2012.  Sorry about that.  Maybe you can still see the collection in bloom if you hurry!  I just submitted my next guest post for The Herb Companion about roses so I'll let you know when it is up on their site.

Going to get stormy here.  So perfect day to go to the movies.  It is called The Intouchables, a true story.  I think it has French subtitles.  Loved, loved, loved this movie.  Had dinner at our favorite Aji Picante.  Had my two favorites, Causa and Arroz con leche.  Delicious!  Had to get out the crystalized ginger.  It worked very well.  Hope you are having a great day.  Talk to you later.
