Rose Garden

"A Rose is perfect in every moment of its existence"
                         ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

My father grew beautiful roses right up until he passed away 4 years ago at the age of 89. He would put out fresh roses every day for passersby to take for free.

For our 30th wedding anniversary this year Paul picked out 14 roses that he knew my father grew (and that we loved) and we started a new rose garden together. We also received roses as gifts from loved ones. So, this is the beginning of a new tradition in our family, and a continuation of the amazing legacy my father left behind. Not all of our roses are in bloom right now, but here are some that are. We can't wait to share them with you.
