Der Rosenmeister Roses Are Blooming
Okay, so the first image I inserted into the blog today wasn't a rose... but rather a gorgeous azalea, made almost transparent from the torrential downpour that pelted the flowers in Ithaca on Friday night.
At this point, all I can say is hustle over to Lee's nursery while there are still roses to be had. Once they're gone, you'll have to wait another year. And when you visit, be sure to stick your nose into as many roses as time allows. Some of these heirloom roses have the most wicked combinations of smells.... somewhere between citrus, rose, and spice. Maybe even clove. Just phenominal. And of course, be sure to ask Lee your rose gardening/pruning/planting questions while you're there. If you get home and realize that you have a burning question, email him or leave a question on his blog.
