Blooming Away

June 26th, 2018

The ‘New Dawn’ and ‘White Dawn’ roses I purchased earlier this spring are growing quickly and blooming like mad. I’m really interested to see how well these do in our cold winters. I’d love it if they would grow up and cover the living room wall.

I’m already impressed by their growth, they’ve doubled in size in a little over a month.

Do you have any roses in your garden? What’s your favorite color of rose?
