The Wallflower of Long Island College
As I have had numerous occasions to remark, LICH does a nice job of landscaping. In particular I like the two separated individual rose bushes on Hicks Street. The picture here is of the one to the south, close to the corner of Amity Street. It is a beautiful bush, here shown as of today, out of its prime blooming season, but there is still one bloom on top (and, I believe, another one toward the bottom).
Rita and I enjoy these roses each time we pass by. But here is a question: why are these roses so lonely ? By adding another few bushes, it would seem, the result could be truly fantastic. Does it really take that much more effort to care for, say, five bushes than for one ?
