Knock Out Roses

Posted by Picasa

Our roses are beautiful this year, with all the snow cover we had last winter, we only lost 1 bush to winter kill.

I have June 11th off, we are going to Reiman Gardens for their Rose Festival, I can not wait :).  I love the Butterfly House that they have, we have not been there since last December so I am counting the days until  the 11th.

Guess which lovely photo is my new background? I hope that is okay? Well, shoot! I am scheduled to have surgery June 11 so I won't be flitting around in a butterfly house. Hopefully you will have photos to share from your excursion.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

Erin, I am pleased that you are using my roses as your desktop wallpaper. Hope your surgery is nothing too serious, good vibes your way. Where in Iowa are you? I am by Waterloo.

Beautiful rose! Do you make anything with your roses (rose hip jelly, tea, wine, etc.)?

I live in Des Moines. I did live in Cedar Falls while in Jr. High. Love that area! Surgery is elective but much needed. Looking forward to it but getting a little nervous today. lol Love your blog and how it is Iowa related.
