Newbies for 2022

Purple roses.

Thanks to terrific daughter Elisabeth and wonderful fiancé George, my dear wife Karen was gifted with two new plants for us to enter into our backyard gardens this season.

Pink rhodendrons.

Needing my shovel work are a purple rose plant, to take the place of one that did not make it over the past winter, and a lovely second rhododendron to mark last year’s visit to the grand festival on Cape Cod.

Thank you, family!
