‘Old Blush’ China rose

This was one exquisite rose in the New York Botanical Garden, in the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. The sign said it was developed by “unknown” in 1751. And still perfect.

Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden

Went to visit a friend in New York and we went to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. I had never seen the huge rose garden there, which was at its peak. If you can ever go, do so. This is less than half of it.

Big Creek

We went camping. Even though the air was hazy with wildfire smoke, it was still beautiful out there.

Poinsettias, outdoors

One of the great pleasures of a foreign trip is seeing what grows well there. I was so pleased to see this outdoor display of poinsettia plants in San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, last month.

Happy 10th blogoversary to me!

Believe it or not, I’ve been posting my top fave photos on this blog for TEN YEARS! In honor of the occasion, I think I’ll post a photo of me, which I never do, taken by a friend on my recent trip to San Miguel.

Thank you, dear reader, for your friendly visits, and especially your comments. Right this minute, there are 24,319 comments in the blog. And not one comment—not even one!—has ever been anything but kind, sometimes insightful, and occasionally even admiring. What a different world from some other online spaces. Thank you all. Here’s to another ten years.

Succulent rosettes

On my recent trip to Mexico, I saw some extremely pretty succulents in my sister’s garden. Don’t they look like roses?
