This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

Old Roses...........

There are so many varieties of Roses these days, beautiful Roses. A great many of the hybrids do not have scent. Many years ago I got an old fashioned rose from a relations farm. It was at that time planted in the sun, my garden changed over the years and it came to be in shade. At one time it was so full of flowers with heavenly scent that someone asked to pick the petals for a wedding. I was glad to let them. Well, it did not fare well once in shade. So two years ago I moved what was left. I managed to get 3 plants. One has survived and is blooming this year. It looks strong. The other two are gone, but I think this one will thrive. It looks healthy,the flowers are small but are coming along nicely. I took this picture this morning.

The leaves are small as well and sort of curly

So pretty...........I do so hope that this rose thrives now in its new location because its an antique.
