BLANKETS OF ROSES – Marilyn Armstrong


Although the first run of roses is beginning to fade a bit, it’s still an impressive site out there in our garden, or, as they say around here, GAHDEN. Dump that “r” … we don’t need them in Massachusetts. Bet you can’t find an “r” in there. No “r” in Massachusetts!

A few roses!

It’s really quite impressive. When I took my clippers and attacked the roses, I hoped it might improve them, straggle bunch of brutal thorn bushes that they were. I did not expect this massive response.

  1. More of those stunning roses. I so adore their color. 😀


  2. What a glorious garden, Marilyn.


  3. They clearly like the attention you gave them. 🙂


  4. Nice ‘Oses. Wait, you mean the dump the R rule doesn’t work that way?


    • That is a rather unique way of dealing with it, I grant you. Actually, we add and r at the end of words that don’t have one, like “idear,” remove them in the middle of words, which sometimes makes the word sound like something else entirely.
