Summer Roses

These little sweeties are right by the gate where you drive in our drive way - they bid me good morning each day.

There is no rose more "rosey" than Rosa Rugosa -

Unless it is the beautiful lavender "Sterling Silver"

This little rose starts out bright pink and fades to peach colored.

I've spent a couple of days trying to remember the words to the song "Summer Roses" - you know the one that Marie Osmund used to sing? - Then I remembered the song was called "Paper Roses" - not the same things at all - joke's on me - ha ha...

In some areas of town, roses flourish and thrive. Not so here. I think it's due to how long we stay cold with a very short season. Even the ones supposed to be cold hardy don't do well here. :(
Thanks for letting me enjoy yours.
