Surprise Rose Garden

Remember this? Well, I know I told you the mystery would be solved next Spring, but that should tell you how much I know about growing roses. To be exact: I know precisely 3% of all that there is to know.

It seems that $5 surprise rose bushes are just itching to bloom.

They're in a race against the clock to see who can win my deepest affections.

Some seem to think I'm the thoughtful, demure, romantic type.

Others are gambling that I'm loud and rowdy and a little lusty.

So far, it's a four-way tie for the lead...and Cinco de Mayo and Hot Cocoa haven't even left the gate. (They're playing hard to get.)

If this doesn't count as a Metamorphosis, I just don't know what does.
