Friday Flower Fiesta (12-15-17)—San Diego winter roses

Friday Flower Fiesta

My wise old grandmother often told me that if you meet a plant’s specific needs for water, light, and temperature, you can grow anything anywhere. That, of course, is why we have greenhouses.

Here in San Diego, with our Mediterranean climate, we don’t have to worry much about light and temperature. It’s the water that often is the deciding factor for whether or not we can grow something, especially outdoors.

There is a rose garden over in Balboa Park, and except when the rose experts come along in February and March and destroy all the roses by cutting them back, they bloom year round. Following are pictures of roses in the Balboa Park rose garden taken a few days ago.

Which are your favorites?
