My Texas Rose Garden

      Very first home, and the first opportunity to grow my own plants! And I chose roses! Red being one of my favorite colors, I was naturally inclined to red roses. Before I knew, flower beds in my little home was full of red rose bushes, some climbers. Hubby & I moved plants around as it matured, and added other colors over time.
     Most of my roses were purchased from Oregon based Heirloomroses. They sell own root roses that arrived very healthy and grew vigorously with a bit of Mill's Rose Magic every year :)

Alec's Red, very fragrant!
