It's been such a long time since I've seen Jim. We never knew what critter would be in his yard and we would go visit him and Carol. One time he gave me some roses off one of his beautiful plants; I think it was called 5 Sisters or something like that. He was proud of that rose bush. I also have some Comfrey in my yard that he shared with me.
