I'm on my third rose garden. My first garden began when my husband did a multi-party mediation for some folks on a N. Cal commune ten years ago. One of the gals grew roses and sent me 15. I had never grown anything but one none too vigorous houseplant and had just bought my first house on an acre in Salem, OR. Well, she put some choice roses in that batch (SDLM, Mme. Plantier, Sombrueil...) and I was hooked. I have moved some of those plants three times now. I am now on an urban double lot in Portland, OR with a husband, cat and two toddlers.

I am rebuilding, but currently grow:
