I have the good fortune to be married to a very kind and loving man. He also happens to be an ordained minister. He is my reverend! My reverend brings me roses. Many and often!
In my garden, I have a room we call Perry's Pond. Perry's Pond is surrounded by a variety of rose bushes. When I bought my home and yard, the rose bushes had been upkept for quite some time. Several had seemingly, to me anyhow, died. But much to my delight and amazement, they were simply resting. Who knew that roses could lie dormant for years?
During the spring of 2010, I couldn't get away from work long enough to tend to my roses. My reverend had a bit more flexibility so made many trips back to our property and on each visit, he faithfully took and posted pictures to keep me abreast of how my roses were fairing.
It is with pride and love I present to you,
(with kudos to my reverend).....
Perry's Pond 2010.
Feel free to stop and smell the roses!
|Early in the 2010 season. |
Rose are beginning to bloom.
|One my favorites. Such joy and delight when after|
two seasons this beautiful rose bloomed.
Such a miracle. It has continued to bloom yearly since 2006.
Dare I say, it's my favorite?
|My yellow tea rose. She grows and blooms throughout the season. |
She lives at the entrance to Perry's Pond
and sends an aromatic welcome for all who enter.
|Perry's Pond is still a work in progress. |
It has already captured my heart and imagination.
I am a blessed!
Happy R Day!
