ROSES, ROSES AND MORE ROSES..........
Today I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful roses from my rose gardens. I have more than I know what to do with and deadheading and cutting is keeping me busy.
I bring in as many as I can and make arrangements....because once the heat starts they don't last long on the bush.
April and very early May is the short season for roses here.....at least that is how it is at our house.
I may get one more batch of beautiful blooms depending on the heat here....but I always enjoy them no matter how few or how many bloom.
In closing....I want to share information on a book I have been reading and enjoying to the fullest.
This book, by Diane Ackerman, is a gardner's dream book. It is not a how to book about gardening...but it is rather a book about all the sensual delights she derives from her gardens during each season of the year.
It is beautifully written and her descriptions make you feel as though you are part of her magical world in her garden.....bugs and all. LOL LOL
If you are an avid gardner, as I am, I don't believe you will be disappointed with this wonderful read. Treat yourself to this tidbit......us gardner's know another gardner when we read one. (O:(O:
