A Kansas Country Garden
|After several meager years this Dave Austin rose, Heritage, is in top form this season.
|This David Austin rose has a wonderful scent.
|This simple flower, Rosa eglanteria, has a lovely scent (even the foliage!).
|This is a common, nearly wild rose found in many country gardens.
Today I am thinking of all the dear people who share the name "Rose". It's easy to see why a parent would pick that name to bestow on a sweet baby girl. Beautiful, generous and well-loved--it's what every parent desires for their daughter. So here's to the lovelies who embody the name they bear:
My mother, Lillian Rose (now with Jesus)
My step-mother, Rose
My niece, Emilee Rose
My great-niece, Kalla Rose
My cousin, Sharon Rose
|This is a case where a grafted rose came up from it's root stock, and its okay.
