ROSES in our YARD--2017

SUMMER SURPRISE ROSE in our Yard,  7/25/17
Welcome to August.....   August is a special month for me since it is my birthday month.... George always  comes up with some nice surprises for me --so that makes it even more special,  except for the fact that I'm turning the BIG SEVENTY FIVE this coming Saturday, August 5.... YIPES....

Today I'm featuring two of our 2017 ROSES growing in our yard for YOU....  The header at the top is named  FLAMINCO and it is new to our yard this year.  Isn't it just gorgeous??  AND the one featured on this post is named  SUMMER SURPRISE.   The colors of these two roses are similar --but they are very unique and different,  one from the other....

Thanks to George and his hard work taking care of the roses  (trying to keep the deer away especially).   I really do get to enjoy seeing all of them blooming.   No two rose is ever alike,  even the ones on the same bush...    Don't we wish that people were more like roses?   The Roses just BLOOM and never complain or compare themselves to other roses...  Each one knows that he/she is beautiful and unique.

Have an awesome AUGUST, my Friends.

Hugs,

Seventy five?? Still a puppy:) I just turned 78 so I'd trade with you in a heartbeat. See there is always someone who thinks you are still a youngster. Enjoy this birthday week and keep smelling the roses.
