Today’s photos are from Desiree Daniel in Texas. She says, “I live in Joshua, Texas. It’s a small rural town just 20 minutes south of Fort Worth. My gardening zone is 7b. The summers here are very hot. Temperatures can get up to 105 degrees. Despite this, my mainly old garden roses bloom like crazy. They suffer a bit in July and August but spring to life again in September to November. The spring display is “near English”. I say this with good authority, having lived in England for a number of years.
“I am an avid gardener. I garden on 8100 square feet. I grow mainly roses and perennials. My garden grew in five years from a basic builder’s lot full of Bermuda grass to several areas with roses, perennials, and Texas natives.
“I enjoy sharing my garden with friends who live in apartments and don’t have the room for gardening. It’s such a pleasure to see their faces in the spring when everything is fresh and green.”
Lovely, Desiree! Please, please, PLEASE tell me the name of the rose in the 5th photo. It’s dreamy! Can I just say how much I LOVE when you guys send me pictures of yourselves to include in these posts? It’s so much fun to put a face to a name/garden. And now we know that Desiree is a nurse–nurturing both at work and at home. Thanks, Desiree!
