>New Roses Planted

>I finally planted some of the roses I bought recently.

  • “Peace”- Hybrid Tea. To replace my sickly one I planted two years ago in memory of my Mother.
  • “Double Delight”- Hybrid Tea. A beautiful rose I saw at the Rose Show. It has a wonderful fragrance.
  • “Reine Des Violettes”- Hybrid Perpetual. Shrub Rose, 1860. Could this be my Dowager Queen winner at the Rose Show next year???

Gardening has proved to be good therapy for me. Being able to dig, plant, water, fertilize, prune and harvest something that brings nothing but beauty into the world has taught me many valuable lessons about life.
