The pleasure of our gardens, part 3

New spring colors are blooming in our back yard garden ~ red, pink, white, orange ~ and everything's coming up roses.

As April winds down, our rose bushes are taking notice of the rising temperatures and increasing sunshine to produce many stunningly beautiful blooms. A few late-season rain showers the past couple of weeks haven't hurt, either.

Our First Prize rose bush already has yielded two blooms that have reached full maturity with several more just opening their petals. The same holds true for our white rose bush. Other varieties are ready to pop open this week including our All That Jazz, Queen Elizabeth and Mr. Lincoln rose bushes.

Yes, just like the Stephen Sondheim lyric from the song in Gypsy, everything's coming up roses for me and you.

Stay tuned.
