Everything’s Coming Up Roses!

“I believe in roses. Oh God, yes! I do believe in roses! And I believe in lots and lots and lots of them, too!”  ~~ C. JoyBell

Lord, it’s been ages since I posted here!  I thought Spring would be such a great time to garden-blog — and I’m still sure it is — but things got more than a little hectic around here recently, with a loss in Ray’s family, and new personnel in the business — and Spring sort of had to make it on it’s own out there.  I do have dozens of photos but no blog to go with them.

Rather than try to play “catch up,” I’m just going to jump in with the biggest thing going right now — which is roses — roses everywhere!  Our Mediterranean climate here seems perfectly suited for roses, and they are everywhere you look.

I unfortunately do not have names for  most of these roses, but here’s the one I do know — the Fourth of July climber:

I do love this rose!
