Grandmother's Flowers

When I was growing up, my grandmother Mary always grew all kinds of flowers.  I used to visit her when I was able to drive and just sit in the swing in her backyard and listen to buzzing insects, while breadthing the perfume from her flowers.  Her roses were beautiful. I loved to cut them and make pretty arrangements for her. 

When I because an adult, I lived in Houston Tx.  The soil there is great for growing just about anything, so I grew roses.  I've moved around a little bit, but now I live in a 100 yr old house and I have 9 rose bushes in my front yard.  I love their beauty and smell. Now, if I could just keep my dog's tail from beating them up!
