Roses really are red

Our garden is coming along nicely, but the best are the roses which are doing extremely well in spite of the heat.  To be fair, we do tend them carefully, ensuring that they have the right amount of moisture and sun light.  The roses are in containers so that they can be moved around in our tiny garden to take full advantage of sun and shade.

Most of us are straddling two different worlds right now.  There’s our personal life and  stuff, and then there’s the business world which we haven’t completely abandoned or been separated from.  Just because we’re at home, playing at being retired or furloughed doesn’t absolve us from responsibilities to provide advice to our … Continue reading What to do now; Plan, Prepare, Participate
