I've got to say, Sylvie, that I don't have that much luck with roses either, but I keep on buying them. Hehehe! Some people drink, some smoke, some gamble , but my vice is roses.
Visited my friend with the young GSD today and gee, he was so pleased to see me. Disappointed no doubt that I didn't have time to throw things for him to retrieve, his body language was making it so clear that I was to follow him out to the paddock for a game. He got the zoomies in the house and floor rugs were sent flying, it's amazing how fast that breed is.
