I moved back in to the house of my adolescence in Marin County, CA z9, in ’99. Since then, I have completely re-made the backyard into a colorful garden of roses and perennials. After an overwhelming initial rose-addiction phase of buying tons more roses than I had space or time or psychic energy to enjoy, I developed the philosophy that roses were part of the canvas on which I painted my garden. Now if I want a rose, I have to say goodbye to another rose. Tough love, I guess.
