I love roses, don’t you?
Believe it or not, I used to have 40 different varieties of hybrid tea roses in my garden when I lived in Phoenix.
Now, I am perfectly happy with my 3 David Austin shrub roses.
Technically, they aren’t my roses.
They belong to my kids.
The beautiful pink rose, above, is Abraham Darby, which belongs to my daughter, Ruthie.
We planted these roses 3 years ago.
You can read about our planting adventure here, “Three Little Roses – Ready for a New Home” and “Three Little Roses -Time to Plant” complete with rose planting guidelines and pictures of my kids when they were much younger – where does the time go?
Hope your week is off to a good start!
I must admit that I am really missing my daughter, Rachele, who is entering her second week of basic training in the Navy.
