The roses are hardier in the desert here than the lilac blossoms. While the rose petals dry out, the bushes keep blooming all summer long if I make sure to to trim the bushes monthly.
When the summer breezes are coming from the right direction, the rich scent of roses in bloom reaches the back porch. Their scent and beauty makes even the dustiest hottest summer day a moment of joy when I gaze at them.
I hope you all find a moment of beauty this week.
Until then, Lynn
