Everything's Coming Up Roses!!!

Saturday, April 26, 2008

All of our roses are starting to show the rewards of all our diligent, hard work! There are quite a few that are blooming and if not blooming, in bud. I love roses so I always look forward to this. When my roses start blooming in the Spring, I start getting the fever and excitement of another season of dreaming of all the roses that are yet to come. Tomorrow, Bruce & I are going to the annual Gainesville Rose Society Rose Show at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. I'm very much looking forward to it. Below are just a few of the pictures I took of some of my favorite roses in the gardens yesterday. Enjoy!
