Blooms galore in the desert! Today we focus on a rose garden near my house. I've had an excellent show in our own gardens this year. But if inspiration is needed, you must visit The Gardens. It's getting hot and the roses will soon be finishing up.
Roses perform best in Tucson during the months of March/April/beginning of May and than later in October/November before our winter begins. They do go into a hibernation but always snap back in early spring.
I've done a lot of writing about roses on this blog and you can find those links just by typing in "rose" up in the search box above. Here are some of my favorite shots from this incredible rose garden.
Roses come in all colors. For some reason, I enjoy the above colors better than the traditional red.
But as you can see, there are so many choices to pick from.....where does one start?:) I started with a couple bushes a year and always add different colors for the El Presidio gardens. More tomorrow....
