You have such a beautiful rose garden! It makes me miss my dad’s roses.

What a gorgeous picture of the Parfait rose Chris. Good luck in the contest! I got a new Edmund’s Roses catalog in the mail yesterday and was drooling over some of the new roses for 2012 and those to be added in 2013. I have to make another rose bed somewhere. LOL!
The Loretta Lynn Van Lear rose? I’m hearing good things about it.
