Obviously these aren't from this year....it's a little early yet! But these are a few of the roses in my yard. I'll be posting more pictures of them but I can only post 5 pictures per post. Anyways, I have lost some of my roses this past year and I have no idea why unless it was the heat and drought. Of course I watered, but there's nothing like a good rain shower! It really kind of breaks my heart to look at these pictures as I see the ones that will be gone this season...:( I guess I'll just have to start anew in those areas. Roses and hydrangeas are my favorites and I have about 50 hydrangea bushes but they too have taken a beating this past year, both from the weather and from "man-made disasters"!
