A Good Year for Roses

June is National Rose Month and we're celebrating in style here at Our Little Acre.  As anyone who grows roses knows, some years are better than others and more times that not, the good years are when we get plenty of spring rain.  This year was like that.

Last year wasn't good at all and I wondered how the roses would fare through a summer of drought, but they seem to have survived and look none the worse for wear.  In fact, they're outdoing themselves in their first flush of blooms.

Beautiful roses and such variety! I think I might have 6 roses in my yard but I am not a good rose grower, they don't look as fantastic as yours!
