ROSES, ROSES, ROSES COME OUT FOR MAY!



Hi Everybody!!
Roses are likely the most familiar and favorite garden flower of all time. Today's post looks at a few varieties starting to bloom here at the Bird Sanctuary. Roses grow best in full sun.  Here, I have dappled shade so I stay with a few climbing roses and Knock Out bush roses. The color has faded on my early spring blooming azaleas, so the bright roses are a delight in the month of May.  I make tea from the rose hips. There are many things to learn just walking among the flowers!  Be sure to stop and smell the roses.  Enjoy!
