Roses at the Ranch~Today's Flowers 051610


First of all, let me tell you that these are NOT my roses. Oh, no! I've killed every rose bush that I have planted in the last 35 years! No, no, no! For some reason, I can't grow roses. My parents could. They had BEAUTIFUL ones! My neighbor can. She has beautiful ones. My school can. They have beautiful ones. But not me. Period. So, I have to enjoy others' roses. These are in full bloom right now up at the ranch. I'm sure they, like my parents, put tons of horse manure on them (there are, after all, over 20 horses on the ranch!) And, look at that blue sky! Ahhhhh....a warm day, the fragrance of roses, being with my horses...what else could I want? Today's Flowers for May 16, 2010.

Your photo is gorgeous Cheryl. Your neighbor's roses are very beautiful. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day with your horses :)

The roses are pretty! Do you have mini roses where you are? I have good luck with them and they survive my Colorado winters. All I do is trim them in the spring, water whenever the rest of the plants need water and some Miracle Grow.

They are lovely roses, Cheryl. You may not be able to grow them but you sure can photograph them!
