Long Stemmed Red Roses – From My Garden

This weeks “Wordless Wednesday” post featured a shot of our Veteran’s Honor roses on bush. After I took the picture, I remembered the promise I made the Mrs. when I first began this rose growing adventure: There are to be fresh roses in her dressing room table whenever blooms are available. True to my promise, I realized that I had at least a half-dozen long-stemmed red “Veteran’s Honor” blooms right in front of me.
