Daily Inspiration

The roses have begun their late summer flush of color- I love it! English roses are, without a doubt, my favorite flower out in my garden, so forgive me if this isn't the last David Austin rose you see in the next couple weeks!

Yes, roses are a bit more maintenance than other perennial shrubs, but they are worth every last effort. Just look at those blooms! I used to have color preferences, but I now find myself melting at the sight of any English rose, no matter the color. This rose is in my yard- planted early this spring.  This particular variety stays shorter (3.5'x2.5') and its fragrance is to die for!
