One of the white roosters came up lame about two weeks ago and he kept getting worse until he was just sitting on the ground and had to be given his food & water on the spot. We thought he was a goner for sure.
Things were not looking very good for "Chicken Boy."
Then one day Norman went out there to feed them, dreading the idea of having to put poor Chicken Boy out of his misery - and he was gone - he was up on two feet and limping but doing better.
So now we are calling him "Lazarus the Chicken Boy."
We think he got in a fight with another rooster and was injured.
Now we are thinking - probably too many roosters - time for the stew pot for somebody! Not Chicken Boy though......
Of course he never does anything with pictures so he has no basis from which to judge...
Anyway every time I try to look at a photo and this other program comes up it drives me CRAAAZZZYYY!!! Does anybody else have this problem! And don't tell me I'm resistent to change!!!! GRRRRR!!!!
Phew! That felt good.
Okay, some announcements:
1. Luepke Florist of Vancouver Washington is celebrating their 100th anniversary - check luepkeflorist.com to see the latest poop. Did you know they provided the obligatory bouquet of roses when new ships were christened at the Kaiser shipyards during WW II? And guess who grew those roses - none other than Peterkort Roses (J. Peterkort & Co. at that time). Yep, history was being made!!!
2. Pomarius Nursery has been there for a while, but I just discovered it, thanks to Francoise Weeks - it's in NW Portland at the northern end of NW 18th Avenue. I scored a really beautiful blue clematis alpinus, now the problem is where to put it. Pomarius is right next to Bedford Brown, an interiors and interior plantscaping studio, and one of our customers....
3. The early Lily of the Valley is blooming!!!! Come & see it, call us to order if you need it (503) 628-1005.
Also still discombobulated because our computer started running slower, slower, ssllloooooooowwwweerrrrrrrr, and so pretty sure it had some kind of worm/virus/malware thing and probably participating in denial of service attacks or otherwise being a zombie/bot/slave of some nasty somebody someplace!!!
So we had to wipe it and start over.
Anyway that's by way of apologizing for lack of blog activity.
Trying to keep PMA (positive mental attitude) in spite of PMS!!!!
Hang in there and keep reading my blog - courtesy of Peterkort Roses, rose grower in Oregon, USA.
It's always a good magazine, and it's fun to have somebody you know featured inside.
