I have never grown roses. Arthur and I talked about planting them before he died but never got around to it. I have planted 6 rose bushes since last year. I really don’t do much with them. I talk to them when I am in the garden but that’s about it. And yet, they still give me beauty. This one was waiting this morning, in the rain.. I have about 10 new buds as well. It makes me smile.. I believe that Artie takes care of all the flowers in the garden, he shows his love for me through them. He knows I go out there everyday and talk to him. It is one of his greatest signs for me..
