I have discovered a wonderful place that sells antique roses. My Mom and I have
been discussing where to add some rose bushes in the garden. I don't have a lot of
sun, but I have a few spots where I think roses will do well. Mom pulled out an
article about roses form the last year's March 2013 issue of Southern Living and
they mentioned the Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham, Texas.
I am sure that many of you are already familiar with this place, but for
those of you who are not, you will be delighted by their site. Isn't this
stone cottage surrounded by kitchen gardens a delight! Brenham is only
a couple of hours from us. I have been to Brenham a couple of times
years ago and found it to be a wonderful hill country town. Now I can
hardly wait to return to visit the emporium.
I have a list of roses we want to purchase. I am quite partial to shades
of pink and I love bushes, climbers, knockouts, you name it.
I read that we can start planting roses in our area in February which is
just around the corner now.
I am especially fond of this climbing variety called the Peggy Martin Rose.

Let me know which ones you like. I already have my favorites.

There are several roses that have minimal thorns. Good for little
dogs like Bentley that go dashing about through the garden in
search of critters. Want to keep him safe!
