This is my third post of roses in our yard. You can see the previous posts by clicking on the ‘Roses’ tag below.
I’ve been growing roses for almost 40 years, long before I knew Betsy. After we got married and bought this house, I did in fact promise Betsy a rose garden. But little did I know how much she would influence the roses that went into that garden.
How, you ask? Well, Betsy was born and raised in Virginia, so Southern Belle rose (above) seemed a natural choice for a garden.
Do you remember the song ‘Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered’? Betsy had that effect on me, and so Bewitched is now in our garden.
After meeting Betsy and getting to know her, I knew I had found a real gem. Is it any surprise then, that Strike It Rich is now in our yard?
Betsy has brought a lot of Love and Peace into my life, as well as this rose into our garden.
What’s been like to be married to Betsy for these almost eleven years? Sheer Bliss sums it up very nicely.
