Everything’s Coming Up Roses

Rose bushI love this time of year when everything is in bloom. I was so happy to have several rose bushes already establishing when we moved into our house a year ago.

This spring I planted two new roses by our patio, where we love to spend our mornings, drinking coffee and enjoying the geckos, bunnies, quail, and roadrunners.Roses multi colored

My husband is color-blind, so he loves yellow roses that he can see against the green leaves. My mother loved roses too, and she struggled to keep them alive with the harsh winters of eastern Montana. Roses seem to flourish here in north-central Arizona.Yellow roses2

I like the low-maintenance of our desert landscaping, but one of these days I’m going to plant a small lawn in our back yard–I just need a little spot of green!

  1. I was rather surprised roses did well where we are, a bit north of you, without any real care. We get some harsh freezes at night. There were roses here when we move in too. Love them.
