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!
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.
It might be irritating for those buried in Winter winds and snows (like me) to hear about Springtime and flowers and such, but in some parts of the United States, Spring buds are starting to form – Winter is on its way out the door.
In comes the roses…and I plan on taking even more photos of these this Summer!
