I found these lovely roses in my neighbor's yard. He has three rose bushes along the picket fence that divides our properties. The bushes were tended lovingly by his wife. She passed away and number of years ago and they aren't nearly as beautiful as when she took care of them. Here are roses from each of the bushes.
These lovely mums are in my other nieghbor's yard. She has the most lovely mums growing on the side of her house. I think these qualify as pink.
The flowers above are from my yard. The rose is what my mother called "Old Time Rose". The bush has been in the yard since the house was built in the 1950's. They are very delicate and don't last long when you cut them and put them in a vase. The other flowers washed in with irrigation years ago and my father decided to let it grow up near the house. (He usually mowed everything that wasn't in a flower bed.) You must have guessed that the home belonged to my parents. We decided to down size and move into the old neighborhood in 2005. We love it here. It's a neighborhood where we have front porches and leave the light on at night. Our neighborhood (West Clark) was recently listed in the National Historic Registery. Such a great place to live.
Hope you have enjoyed this Pink tour of our neighborhood. Weather has been lovely here in the desert Southwest but we are scheduled to cool down this weekend with possible rain.
Thanks for visiting my Pink Saturday post and thanks to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hostessing the event.
