I Called This Picture 'The Garden Last Night'; I walked out on the deck and took a picture of exactly how the garden was in bloom on one summer evening, 'Easy Does It', 'Drop Dead Red', 'Hot Cocoa' and 'Bolero'

This Picture is called ‘The Garden Last Night’; I walked out on the Illinois deck and took a picture of exactly how the garden looked one summer evening. The roses are Weeks Roses and Star Roses And Plantscalled: ‘Easy Does It’, ‘Drop Dead Red’, ‘Hot Cocoa’ and ‘Bolero’.

Creating this view upon which the sun can shine is a room with a rosy view in Illinois. Its a new dawn in the Illinois rose gardens. We started over in Illinois in 2011. We built the rose gardens together you and I. If we can start over so can you! Make it a new prosperous and healthy 2016 filled with roses! Here’s a picture of the gardens then and now. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments. Just look at ‘Rosie O’Donnell’ shot on Christmas Eve morn in Texas VS magnificent ‘Uncle Joe’ shot in the fall with a back drop of the little red barn we built. You know how I love that little barn which represents country living of course.  Merry Christmas Every one!

The award winning film A Room With a View won Best Picture of 1986, National Board of Review. It’s a British 3 time academy award winner about, “when Lucy Honeychurch and chaperon Charlotte Bartlett find themselves in Florence with rooms without views, fellow guests Mr. Emerson and son George step in to remedy the situation. Meeting the Emersons could change Lucy’s life forever but, once back in England, how will her experiences in Tuscany affect her marriage plans?” Written by Bridget Jones

'Uncle Joe' is as 'Big As The Broad Side of A Barn!

When planning our rose gardens having the garden view is a key element  in placing the garden. My kitchen ‘Room With A View’ in Texas; here stands 7’7″, ‘Rosie Donnell’ towering over the fence with her elegant stark, black and white back drop as she stood from Christmas Eve through New Years Day 2011. Glistening with rain drops, I went outside and shot the picture looking up from below the fence on the cloudy Christmas Eve morning. The next shot is of hybrid tea Taboo yesterday morning. That’s then and ‘Uncle Joe and my Little red Barn are now.
