Happy Southern Hemisphere Spring to everybody! (Which means: to those of us like me that live in the Northern Hemisphere, "Happy Fall!")
These pics of me outside of my deer fenced rose garden that I take care of at work were taken in May of 2014, I think... My friend Bill Choisser was still alive at the time, and it was a gorgeous spring day when he and his partner Larry visited me where I work (in San Francisco's suburban East Bay town of Castro Valley).
Growing on the entranceway arch above my head is the beautiful apricot-colored French Noisette rose, "Crepuscule", along with the purple Clematis vine 'Polish Spirit'. Besides growing a lot of fragrant Heirloom and English (AKA David Austin) roses inside, I'm also very fond of various companion plants, like: Lavender, Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea), Salvias, Penstemon, and earlier in the spring, lots of Narcissus (Daffodils)...
Of course, it should go without saying that LONG HAIR always fits in perfectly in any garden or outdoor setting (LOL)!!
