Thank you for indulging me in my love of roses this week! A garden not only provides food for our bellies, it provides a refuge for our spirits. As I work and rest in my garden, the roses provide an amazing splash of color and texture, so too, do the tomatoes, eggplant and okra that grow in the other corners of the garden. Your garden can truly gift you with a feast for your eyes! One of the most important suggestions I can make to a new gardener, "make sure you design your garden with a nice spot to sit and watch it grow!" Roses easily add warmth and wonder to that place.
My Friday roses are from my visit to Anne Jensen's rose garden, Tre Soli. Anne, grows, nurtures and sells her magnificent organic roses at the Scottsdale Old Town Farmers market on Saturday mornings. I thought we could end the week with a sample of roses from her garden. Have a wonderful and blessed Easter weekend!
