Saturday Photo: Roses at Giverny

A year ago Lee and I were in France. It was a delightful trip and we've been thinking of it a lot these days. One of the highlights was a day spent in Claude Monet's garden at Giverny, north-west of Paris, not far from the Seine. Roses were in bloom and the air was full of their scent, and of the sound of bees buzzing happily around.

It'll be a good month before our roses are in bloom, but this picture is a taste of things to come. The forecast is for temperatures not too much above freezing tonight, but my plan is to transplant perennials and put out some annuals anyway. It's Darwinian gardening--what survives, survives.
