Two days of celebration, as yesterday was Cinco de Mayo and today is my birthday, and Larry kicked off the party in style.
For my birthday, I got a Mickey Mouse gnome from my daughter that she bought on her recent trip to Walt Disney World and a pair of Easter themed gnomes from my wife. I also got myself a couple of California Pottery figurines from the 50's to add to my collection.

I also found a listing on Craigslist for free aloe vera and snake plant that wasn't too far from home, so I went over, but by the time I got there all that was left was some snake plant that looked rather ragged. I took some anyway, after all it was free, and potted it up when I got home.

Lastly, at least one of the Climbing Pink Peace roses I bought was definitely mislabeled, as you can see from the photo. This is the second year in a row I've bought a bareroot rose that was mislabeled, but the white may contrast even better than a pink would against the deep red of Climbing Don Juan.
