Hmm, you might want to lay off that nuclear reactor compost for a little while...

ROFL … mainly shredded trees shrubbery and canes winter pruned, pet rabbit pellets, Timothy hay, used pine chips …. and chinchilla droppings … last probably secret ingredient

… because that’s one strange looking mammal that looks like a cross between a rabbit and a squirrel

I dated someone in college who had a chinchilla... between destroying my computer's mouse cord (it was the 90s), the frenetic energy (as if it had a cocaine gland) and the shameless self-gratification, let's just say that it was awfully lucky to be so cute and soft. Now I understand why that rose of yours is so messed up!

Not to worry, first degree was done by slide rule. Second by hi-tech hand held abacus like Hp clicker.

Scored big on stats final because of vendor pre-programmed components for pop analysis equations … legal back then … though ethics not sure of … bless them as did not have to clutter brain with “lies, d-m lies and stats” according to G B Shaw, who apparently professed “It is the mark of a truly intelligent person to be moved by statistics”.

Is anyone breeding with 'Schoener's Nutkana' these days?

Long ago and far away I had a whimsical notion to cross it with 'Sequoia Jewel' [Sheri Anne × Paul Neyron] Maybe a giant mini would result. Or at least a stronger version of 'Paul Neyron' with deeper color.

Considering 'Leonard Barron', 'Schoener's Nutkana' could be an interesting parent. Crossed with a Dwarf Polyantha, the breeding might skip the Hybrid Polyantha stage and go directly to Floribunda or Grandiflora.

Just dreaming. I don't have room for such a project.
