Saturday Snapshot - May 25

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

When anyone comes to our house this time of year, the first thing they notice is our rose garden in our front yard. This year, especially, it is in overdrive.  I wish I could claim some credit for this, but it is all my husband's doing.  Well, I guess I can claim a little credit.  A few years ago, my husband--knowing my affinity for roses--decided to get me rose bushes rather than cut roses for Valentine's day!

  24. Thanks so much for taking this photoshare over, Melinda! Your roses are just beautiful! I am envious, as I don't have a great track record with roses, but always admire them in others' gardens!
