My neighbor's rose~Saturday Flowers~100811

My neighbor is a landscaper and she has the most beautiful garden.  She has a corner lot and when she moved in, she put an olive tree right in the middle of it and then planted flowers around it.  She has roses along her driveway and last weekend I wandered over with my camera.  This summer, as most summers, was pretty harsh on her plants, except for her black-eyed Susans and roses.  Isn't this one beautiful?  Look how delicate the petals are.  I've tried to grow roses for 30 years and I finally just gave up.  My parents had a beautiful rose garden which my father enhanced with trailer loads of horse manure, but I can't grow a single rose!  Go figure...sigh...Saturday Flowers for 100811.  I guess I'll just have to enjoy my neighbor's roses!

what a beautiful rose photo. I try to take flower photos with a black background to accent the flower and yours turned out great. And I love bogenvia but it won't grow here except as a house plant. to cold in the winter.
