Roses in Bloom | Flower Mound, TX Photographer

When I was a little girl we lived next door to Eloise and Bill, an older couple who took me in as their extra grandchild.  All of my grandparents lived out of state so it was nice to have them around.  One Summer when I was around the age of 5 or 6, they planted an oak tree the same height as me and took a photo of me standing next to it.  Of course the oak tree quickly out grew me.  Eloise would take me to her backyard where she grew beautiful roses.  I would walk around and sniff each bloom while she tended to them.  I decided then that when I grew up I would grow beautiful roses in my yard too.  Well I made that dream come true after I graduated college, first in containers until I owned my 1st home.  When my husband and I first married and bought our home that was my 1st priority, to build a rose garden.  I now grow over 25 roses, here are a few blooming this Spring.
