Serenity Sunday~~ I never promised You a Rose Garden

Published by Cathy Brockman on

What is more romantic than roses? Roses also have meaning.  We all know Red is Love and Romance. You can find the full list at Pro Roses  ( I am not an affiliate, I just found it cool.)

I have a Rose Garden. Well, I try to have one. I think it’s one of the hardest things to do.  My husband even moved my  Gazebo to it and put down some pavers.   Each year I plant a few to replace what I lose which I only have about 8 plants there.  It started out lovely but as the heat  hit, the weeds took over.  I went out the other day and found these.

The first is a Ppeace the middle a show stopper and the weird colorless is Yellow The sun caused this effect.  I have two small yellow Golden Showers one in the back of this Garden one in the fence row. Also in the fence row is a lovely white climber that early in the year is covered in white roses and in the back I have a Blaze…always one of my favorites.

I found this tip for rooting roses. I am going to  give it a go. I have nothing to lose but a couple of potatoes. At BackYard Diva



When I started this post this song came to mind. My mom loved Lynn Anderson and I could hear her singing along.




Do you have any rose bushes? What are your favorites?

I remember that song fondly. With my recent kick on perfumes, mainly violet but I’m eclectic, roses are of particular interest too!

    Your post on Perfumes was interesting. I hope I can get this Rose Garden right next year if not I may have to try something else.
