Red Rose Garden

My roses are blooming like crazy this week.  I’m so glad they made it through our brutal winter of last year; they seem stronger than ever.

the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.”

(I’ll be on a vacation for a few days.  I hope to return with some photos to share.  Happy creating!)

High Rise Hollyhock

 

I have a funny story about this flower. Last year, I pulled my hollyhocks thinking they were weeds. The good new is that I didn’t pull out the root, and they returned this year. Fortunately I still have these beauties in my garden. If you look closely, you’ll see a star in the center of each flower. 😉
