Welcome to my Gardening Blog.

In October of 2012 I moved from Anaheim CA to the Mojave Desert. So the older posts will reflect my gardening before the move, and my newer ones are after the move. Now that I have a huge yard and sandy soil (the opposite of what I had in Anaheim), I have to learn how to adapt.

My Rose List

The Rose List
As I lay in bed thinking and trying to sleep last night, I started thinking about the rose list. The rose list is a list of the favorite roses I've planted over the years and had to leave behind when I moved or relationships ended. I like to dream about one day having a big yard and room to plant all the roses on the list and then some. And to live there long enough to enjoy them fully.

Sterling Silver (Although I now believe its a cross because it is a lot more hardy than the ones I had as a child, but since I got it at a swap meet, I'll never know it's true parents, but I'm guessing at least one of them was Sterling Silver) http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.lawhern.org/Photos/2005-May%2...

I'm sure I'm forgetting some, but that's a good list for starters.
