A trip to the feed store this weekend was Step 2 in my quest for happier roses this season. I am going to try a recipe for a "radiant rose cocktail" that I tore out of a Mary Engelbreit Home Companion magazine years ago. Needing a variety of odd ingredients, I found this charming store that sells everything from Epsom salt to hummingbird feeders. I gathered everything I needed and at the checkout I ran into the store manager (pictured here). He reviews each sale and, I assure you, he doesn't miss a thing. I even think I heard him mutter something about sales tax.
