Welcome to all my friends sharing the same passion for flowers!
For those who live nearby I could offer some cuttings. Just choose from my list of roses and leave a message. I'll be more than happy to see the population of roses growing. Anything, for a flowery world!
Those who grow roses in their garden grow also roses in their heart. And this world will be better.
