Having moved to The Singing Woods two years ago, I had to leave behind all my wonderful roses at
my old Victorian. Last year , I decided I needed my roses again, & sent for some Old Fashioned Roses
from Heirloom Roses. I had to BABY these bushes, as soil here is just not compatible to growing
When I came back from the Folk Art Show @ Cinammon Creek Cabin in KY this last Sunday, I was delighted to see the promise of this rose, Reine de Violette, with it's wonderful buds. The weather has turned quite cool here
but I am hoping she will bloom this week. I can smell her fragance NOW!! alas I am to be blessed with
one of my favorite roses blooming here in the wood.
Life is good, take time to stop & smell the roses~***~ Deena
