Green Thumb Sunday: Dad’s rose

Dad’s rose

This is one of the roses from my parents’ garden, and I took the photo two weeks ago when I was visiting them. Happy Father’s Day, Dad!

    Sean, thanks so much for visiting!

    Sara, I almost posted this photo last week and then realized it was much more appropriate for this week, definitely.

    Jean, I’m a big fan of the water droplet effect, too. I’m always happy when I can capture that.

    Chigiy, thank you for the compliment!

    Growthumbs, it was a lovely rose in person — I really wanted to do it justice with the photo.

    Mr. Brownthumb, happy GTS to you, too!

    In the back of my mind I have a recollection of a story, last year about Dad’s rose. If you wrote about this last year. – I still have recollections of it, so the memory now is omnipotent!

    The rose is just beautiful! And thanks for the wonderful garden refreshment recipes. They sound wonderful.

    Drew, thanks so much for visiting!

    Lynn, I can’t remember if I posted a story about Dad’s rose or not, but I know I took plenty of photos of his roses last year, too.

    Gardenmomma, thank you, and enjoy those coolers!
