Most mornings, after sunrise, you will find me outdoors, in the garden. Strolling with coffee mug in one hand, camera hanging off the other...taking mental notes of what needs to get done. And, as we all know, May has a LONG To-Do list. If I somehow miss this ritual...my day just isn't the same! You understand, I know you do!
This is the week of the roses! Climbers that didn't get a hard prune in late winter are sky-high! Hmm...maybe that's a chore I can permanently cross off...never have they bloomed so profusely!
This is my favorite climber of all~Zepherine Drouhin! Intense, heady fragrance...knocks your socks off, really! AND, it's thornless! What's not to love?
Too bad this beauty is scentless but it's the 'biggest' rose I grow. Petal count in the hundreds, but the name escapes me...
This is possibly Don Juan...

Even though the roses are taking center stage right now...there are many other pretty bloomers struttin' their stuff~here's just a few.
Have a great day, friends...looks like a beautiful start to the long holiday weekend...ENJOY!
