Let Me Call You Sweetheart...
Everyone should have a 'sweetheart' rose. I was fortunate enough to inherit one when I bought my house. It sits just inside my fence next to the driveway. Its botanical name is Rosa, "The Fairy." It's easy to see why.
It started blooming a couple of weeks ago, and will continue on through the summer with no encouragement.
Even though the blossoms are not fragrant they more than make up for that in their simple elegance.
