Everything's Coming Up Roses, Part Two

After an embarrassingly long delay, I am finally taking you on a tour of the back yard.  We practically live out here when the weather cooperates; even simple meals taste stupendous when you are sounded by the heady aroma of hundreds of rose blooms.

Here are a couple photos I took today.

Baby roses (gallon size) in the greenhouse.  We were going to have a sale but did a jewelry show instead.  We have got to have a sale in July and find these babies homes!

We're eating right here just about every day that the weather allows.  it sure smells good...

This arbor is the path to the chicken coop, behind the garage.  :-)
Well, that's enough for now.  I hope you enjoyed visiting my rosy corner of the world!
