It has been awhile since I logged in to Gardenweb. Perhaps, once after Katrina. I am well settle in DFW Area and staring to get back to gardening. Are there any other New Orleanians around? or even some that are back HOME? I really never wanted to be " from somewhere else" ( besides New Orleans ) but I think I will stay here, I am tired of running from hurricanes. We have had a good supply of rain lately and my roses are doing well- I just don't know their names-they were left here by the former owners and looked like they were 'goners" when I first bought the house. I saved two of my roses Golden Masterpiece and another which I am trying to identify ( on the Antique Rose site), I recognize some names, especially from the postcard/letter exchange we did about two years ago.
