Daddy's Roses

These are my favorite! They almost look like a cabbage and the pink and white are just beautiful!

I love this time of year because dad's roses seem to bloom and bloom and bloom! He loved his rose bushes and trees. I loved to help him trim them back when it was time. It's one of my fondest memories of him.

I was in the yard today with my sister and Kody (my puppy dog) and decided I needed to take some pictures of daddy's roses. They were in desparate need of pruning too. So after I snapped a few photos, we cut back the dead ones so the new blooms had room to open.

It's amazing how the colors and shapes of these roses have changed over the years. When we move, I think this will be the hardest thing to leave behind. We did plant some new trees in buckets in honor of our parents and we will be taking those with us. So I am going to enjoy them while I can. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Thanks so much for sharing my memory with me! God Bless! Becs
