Wordless Wednesday Roses

This pretty bush is a rare old-fashioned rose I bought from a university plant sale about 20 years ago. I call her our Mary rose for the concrete statue of Mary that often stands near her.

Plant sales are so much fun. Our garden club has them once in a while, and the farmer's market usually has a table of things to choose from. - Margy

Beautiful Roses, Terra. We not only grow Lilies--but we also grow Roses (Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora)... They are so beautiful this time of year.. One of these days (when I can find time, I will blog about our Roses...

YES---we do love LILIES... Our biggest problem is that the critters around here (chipmunks, squirrels, deer, etc.) won't leave them alone! The chipmunks and squirrels especially did up the bulbs thinking they are nuts/acorns.... Because of that, we have lost many of our gorgeous lilies... I think we will replenish them this Fall --and hopefully we MAY have more next year.

Hugs,
Betsy
