This morning as I walked through my garden, I found myself drawn to the roses. It's such a good year for beautiful blossoms. It's been pleasantly sunny but not too hot for them. This is the first bud on my Diana, Princess of Wales rose. I think this is my favorite rose; I know it is my most treasured. This rose bush is planted by the steps leading away from the back porch so I can enjoy it daily. It was a birthday gift to me from my friend, Nancy, in Orlando. She bought one for each of us so we could enjoy our twin roses from long distance. Isn't it beautiful?
