Back to Grandma's House

What's that ad..."what says love better than roses?" Frankly, old fashioned home grown roses (or in this case, grown in the rose garden at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA) are the ones I love. Of course I have NEVER been able to grow them with one whit of success. Here in Washington, with fir trees at our place blocking them from a good long sun soak, no chance. Old rose scents send me back to grandma's house instantly. Those are the kind of roses I hope people are enjoying in memory on Valentine's Day, instead racing out to buy a dozen scentless rose soldiers at some obscene price. Be creative, "remember them" in any color you wish. Today mine are pink and free
