Being a rosarian is something I take pride in, and I love to dig into the notion whenever I can (no pun intended).
I honestly haven’t grown roses in years due to my location mobility, but I do check out municipal gardens whenever I can. I love the smell of roses, their growth cycle, their infinite colors…what’s not to love? You can grow them in a garden, in a pot, you can snip them off to enjoy at home. AND, once they’re “spent”, you can then dry them – everlasting joy!
So, if you’re like me, you are a rosarian – one who loves and enjoys roses. No need to ever have grown them to appreciate them. These 2 designs are for you!
When I lived in Florida, I saw an obsession of residents with all things orchid, which grow naturally there – If you’ve ever seen the movie Adaptation, you know what I mean.
It’s almost time for the magnolias to bloom in the South – and I’m headed there just in time to take more photos!
I took photos of the following pink magnolia blooms at Duke Gardens in Durham, North Carolina. The trees didn’t have many blooms on them at the time, so I’ll make sure to capture as many fully-blossomed specimens as possible this Spring.
