The Rose Garden

The basic story is this:

I had been very busy, this past spring and it had been raining, literally, nonstop... and so it came to pass that I didn't quite realize until the buds were ripe and heavy on the vine, that the roses had been conspiring to surprise us with the most gobsmacking show of proliferation and beauty!

It was tremendous!! And that's it! =) That's what happened. The rain stopped, the sun shone out and the buds opened and I have nothing else to say but it was grand!!





  1. Beautiful your Ria....x!

  2. Dear Katy, this is a post I have been looking forward too! Your garden looks stunning!!! You have exactly the short of colours and flowers in your garden that I love. If my garden looked liked that I would be so very pleased :-) You must have good soil in Vermont!

    Those roses... I think I spot William Shakespeare and Heritage. Am I right? I have them in my garden too, but they don't bloom as pretty and abundantly as in your. It must be a delight to see from the windows of your house. I can imagine you sitting there with your book, like a modern Jane Austen :-)!

    Wishing you lovely days ahead. Enjoy your piece of paradise!

    1. Thank you so much, Cathy! I am originally from 'the city of roses' - Pasadena! But, now, I have lived here in Vermont for twenty years - a place that is NOT friendly to roses. So, these were pretty darn exciting! ;) =)


Short and witty, long and heartfelt, just a blip to say hello - I love all of your comments! Feel free ...
