Mild Spring = Beautiful Roses

We've had a lovely spring here in Arizona.  Weather in the 80s and 90s here in April.  As a result of the wonderful Spring, there are beautiful roses throughout our neighborhood.  As Cody and I go for our daily walk, I am amazed at the lovely roses growing along our route.

These pics are from our own back yard.  The rose bush is a climbing rose and the bush is over 50 years old.  This year it is filled with lovely blooms.  The color is so bright this year too.  We are still enjoying many of the flowers on the patio and in the flower beds.  It won't be long until temps begin to exceed 100 and the flowers will be gone. 

Hope each of you are experiencing lovely Spring weather.  Wishing you a Happy Easter weekend.  I'm planning to see RIO with the granddaughters Friday since they are out of school that day.

I sure wish it would warm up a bit here, I can't even clean up the herb garden due to all the rain and chilly weather. Your birthday present is on its way.

Beautiful roses! All my plants are so dusty and dirty right now. The weather has not gotten better. Still dusty and has gotten windier as the day progressed. :/ Enjoy seeing Rio with the girls. And have a blessed Easter weekend. Best wishes, Tammy
