Just the right amount
of shade and sun caressing
perfect yellow rose

    • Thank you, Rupali. When I lived in Woodlake, California, a small rural town in the center of CA, I volunteered in the Woodlake Rose Garden. I love roses and each bush requires about 90 hours of care per year. There are over 1500 roses, so you can imagine that a small town can’t do it on it’s own. Our Kiwanis group organized a way for us and other service organizations to help care for the roses. It was a huge task, but I think it is finally organized. I am going back there in April or May to see the blooms, so I’ll take lots of pictures. 🙂 Thanks for your response! This was kind of an overkill response to you!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
