R is for Roses
I love roses, but since I live in Texas, growing the long stem beauties that you buy in the store is completely impossible. So I grow heirloom roses. These full blown beauties are so pretty in the yard.
The rain and so many blooms has caused the Lemoncello rose to droop over. It's just covered in yellow blooms right now.
and even closer up.
These next few blooms are from the Butterfly rose. There are three different colored blooms on this plant, pink, pale pink, and a peach color.
This year I'm considering buying a few of those Knockout roses for a pop of color around back by the pool somewhere. If I can find a good buy, that is!
