There are no roses at Garden on Sherlock Street.
Take a deep breath.
I didn't mean to shock you.
There is no declaration that there will be no roses at Garden on Sherlock Street. It just hasn't happened. I did have a lovely group of miniature red tea roses. They were a gift and did great for quite a while. I think they started to decline when the locust tree started shading their space. I should have moved them but other things got my attention. This spring, it became obvious that the one remaining miniature red tea rose, wasn't coming back. I have let other flowers have the space. As I continue to remove sod from the garden, I may find a place to put some roses again in the future. In the mean time, I am enjoying all the rose photos on everyone else's blogs. This past weekend, my wonderful husband and I found time to walk through the Reinisch Rose Garden at Gage Park in Topeka, KS.
There are tons of buds waiting to open so I'm sure there will be roses blooming there for weeks to come. Here's a tiny sample of the amazing roses.
There is a water garden in the center and the lilies were blooming.
We also stopped to admire the beautiful peonies.
