Tonight I will just share a few pictures from my rose bushes.
The weekend has been busy with a memorial service for my friend Oliver yesterday and then helping a friend move today.
I will start with two pictures from my St. Patrick rose bush.
The first picture is of a dried out rose bloom. I will often get roses like this on my St. Patrick rose bush, especially after a few hot windy days in a row. The roses will basically dry out during the opening process. Since I am not watering as much because of the drought, I am seeing more of these this year.
However, I really like the look of these roses. They look like they are made of parchment. No need to dry these roses to save them, although I have never saved any of them. Perhaps I should save some this year.
My first bloom on my Mister Lincoln rose bush is starting to open. I thought about writing another post in my Mister Lincoln Rose series, but decided I will wait to get a picture of a fully open rose.
I would imagine that the rose will be fully open either tomorrow when I leave for work or when I get home. Plus, there are a few more blooms that are opening up.
I did kneel down so that I could smell the bloom. The Mister Lincoln rose has a nice strong scent and this one had a wonderful smell.
I hope that you enjoyed my roses. I really enjoy watching them grow.
