We have to look at a calendar to be sure it isn't still summer, rather than late November. Especially when we look at the beautiful rose garden outside the main building here at Valle del Oro.
We have never been here during an Arizona summer, so I don't know if these bushes bloom then. I do know they like the weather we are having now--high 60s, low to mid 70s--and every single plant is blooming. Some of them have been given in memory of former residents who have died. Those gifts are really appreciated by those of us here today.
I don't have anything more to say about the flowers. But especially for those of you who have snow, cold rain, or freezing temperatures, these pictures are to remind you of summer.
John describes them as "eye candy." Don't you agree? This is one reason we enjoy going south for the winter.
