My adventures in a Zone 9 Southern California garden.
Wednesday, April 8, 2009
The kids are outside playing in buckets of water, so I started poking around the roses to see what might be new. And look! Double Delight is just starting to bloom. The cool temperatures of the spring make pink of the bloom extra dark, with a smaller amount of creamy white in the center. In the middle of the hot summer (up to 110 degrees F), only the outermost petals are pink, and the white center takes over.
I am a mom and gardener in Southern California who loves to plant new things to grow and eat. My family loves to play and eat off the vine in the garden so we are totally organic. We really enjoy the beauty given to us from God!
