Your garden is absolutely beautiful!
Thank you so much!
How beautiful your roses are. Where I live, just above the 49th parallel, roses are just beginning to bud. Every bud carries the promise of a spring that’s just begun and the glorious summer that’s yet to come.

Deserve a WOW!
One of my dreams…
The roses (and their colors) are spectacular — and I love your use of technology in sharing the blooms of your labor.
Kevin, Thanks for stopping by. We are seeing some nice blooms this year. I appreciate your kind words….
OH my gosh you are a master gardener. I totally love this. I was wondering if there were any on WordPress. I have several friends that are and there is a small club in my town. I tend to kill trees, plants and just about anything delicate but I admire those who have the gift to grow. I live in an extremely dry climate it is so hot here in the summer lost 3 trees and all my evergreens last year so I can’t wait to explore your site. Yay I’m glad you liked on my blog so I found find you. 🙂 Have a super day!
