Last week’s two rose posts, which seemed to generate tremendous un-enthusiasm, did more than that. They were so unpopular that they helped drop the blog’s visitor average by 10 percent in just five days.
Some of that was certainly the holiday weekend. But the Monday Memorial Day post, featuring John Cleese as Basil Fawlty, did better than the rose posts. So did last year’s regional wine week posts, which usually solicit tired yawns.
I can see I have my work cut out for me when it comes to rose.
