Roses

This is just a sample of the gorgeous blooms on the rose bushes at Steele Indian School Park that I featured yesterday. I don’t think I’ve seen so many stunning blooms all in one spot.

I didn't see an aphid in the lot. That is amazing. LOL

I used to grow roses but the aphids were a constant problem. Not wanting to use chemicals, I sent off for a million (it seems like) lady bugs whose main diet is aphids. I opened the box in the rose garden and the millions of lady bugs disappeared -- I guess to some other rose garden. LOL

"A rose is a rose is a rose." I wonder how many times you'll get this quote today. It's a beautiful collage and lifts my early-morning spirits!

I don't know how this is possible, but I can actually smell them here in my apt in Chicago.

A rose is a rose and they're all beautiful!

Thanks for the birthday wishes. I bet the perfume along there is excellent. Cream roses are my favourite I think.

What a lovely collage, Sharon! The colors are so varied - I can almost smell them! Glad you were able to get these photos before the heat destroys them...
