"Everythings Coming Up Roses"

Well I'm back in Cajun Country and getting ready for our Festival International deLouisiane. Festival International de Louisiane is a community-based, non-profit arts organization formed in 1986 to produce an annual visual and performing arts festival celebrating the French cultural heritage of southern Louisiana – primarily a combination of French, African, Caribbean and Hispanic influences. The largest outdoor, FREE Francophone event in the U.S., the Festival places special emphasis on highlighting the connections between Acadiana and the Francophone world. Each year performing, visual and culinary artists from Europe, Africa, Canada, the Caribbean and the Americas are invited to share their talents with Louisiana artists, residents and visitors.

The Hodge Crop is doing quite well. We had a couple of storms come through last night and the sun will be shining for a couple of days. In addition to the Hodge Crop we have other plants to show. We planted these Antique Roses in the Spring of 2006. The red one is called the All Ablaze Climbing Rose. Not quite sure what the pink ones are. I'm certainly not the "green thumb" of the family and lucky that R is. He nutures our plants/yard like they were his own babies!

Everything’s Coming Up Roses is a song from the Broadway musical Gypsy: a musical Fable famously sung by Ethel Mermen. It was composed with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and music by Jule Styne.
