You say "Cliché," I say "Classique"

Maude help me, but I love roses. Absolutely love them. It probably dates back from when I was a kid and we visited Butchart Gardens in British Columbia. I walked, entranced, through row after row after row of every type and color of rose imaginable. One of the reasons I always wanted to live in a house was to have a rose garden. And now I have one, a small one. Most of our yard is far too shady to be optimal for growing roses, but a patch alongside the driveway on the side of the house is perfect. When we were having the landscaping redone, the landscaper planted these for me. I’d asked him to put in a wide variety of colors, but he stuck with pinks, reds and lavenders. Oh well, they’re lovely anyway and blooming like crazy right now so I thought I’d share. Enjoy!
