Old Florida roses...

No green thumb
needed.
They thrive on
neglect.

Pale pink dominates, reaching to six feet high.







It's Sparky's playground.
He is forever chasing lizards
under and around the bushes.

Some pretty good neglect going on, I think.

My favorite are the red ones growing next to the white ones.

J Cosmo, I love easy ;-)

Freddie, wish I could send you a bunch!

Larry, unfortunately, the red ones were not in prime shape for close-ups. I'll keep watch, though, and post a good pic just for you.
