Peach Swirl

I went to the Lake Harriet (Lyndale) Rose Garden the other day.

I found a few roses I plan to try to find for my garden.

Peach Swirl (my favorite):

And, Dancing In The Dark:

Of course, these roses are blooming right in my part of my country so I know they’re capable of growing here (why I looked at this garden). Now, I need to learn more about digging trenches… Well, that and a million other things. It’s a difficult art in these parts.

Actually, in the early 1960’s JFK and Jackie visited here and stopped at this garden and he was heard remarking that he had no idea we were able to even grow roses given our winter weather. I’m hopeful I can too…

We shall see.
