Roses, always roses
I gathered up a few rose pics taken during July. Most of these roses have already wilted, but there will be new ones. (And, no, it's not really a coincidence that I'm posting rose pictures on this particular date.)
Those last red and white roses are climbing roses on the facade of the barn. I don't know if I've shown any pics of the barn. At least not of the front of the barn while the roses are in full bloom so here's a pic below.
There's a climbing rose in the greenhouse on the southern end of the barn too. It was there before the big greenhouse my dad built and was sort of built into it. The rose really thrives, clinging along the roof and peeking through it (as you can see), and because of the sheltering walls and relative warmth inside, the rose usually blooms much earlier than the rest.
And, finally, a view of the crowded dog roses behind the barn. These are the ones you can see in the middle pics above (e.g. the rose with the bee).
