Oh---How I LOVE Roses!!!!

One of our best bloomers,   SEDONA  (photo taken 5/22/19)
Dear Friends,   Hope you are having a nice September... Here in Tennessee,   we are going through a DROUGHT ---which is even worse due to our unusually high temperatures this month.... September has been much hotter than any other month in the summer this year.... Our leaves are dying and just falling off.   Reminds me of last year when we had very little Fall Colors here.... Makes me SAD!

BUT---Hopefully this post will make us all SMILE....  We have had a good year with our ROSES --and I probably have about four more blog posts to show you as we go deeper and deeper into Fall.    Today's post is (with a few exceptions) a post showing your some of our Roses in GROUPS....

Sit back and get a 'cuppa' ---and ENJOY...

A very interesting ROSE since all three of these roses in this photo are the SAME ROSE;  At different stages in its life, it turns different colors.   This is RIO SAMBA  (5/25/19)

SUMMER SURPRISE (6/17/19)
Okay---that's enough for today!!!    I love seeing roses in groups as well as individually (either in buds or open)...... Ah Shucks---I just love our ROSES....

As you can tell --if you looked at the dates---most of these group roses were blooming in May or June...IF you ever visit us here at our home,   come at that time of year... The 'first' group of roses is usually the prettiest  (especially in groups)....

Have an awesome week ahead and pray for RAIN in Tennessee.

Hugs,
