My roses.

For the last few years for Valentine's Day, my thoughtful husband has gotten me something that lasts much longer than a bouquet - an entire climbing rose plant that will provide beauty in our garden year after year.  I look forward to the moment each spring when my roses begin to sprout their buds and bloom.  I love to check out the progress each morning.  This year, they are spectacular...the pruning and trellising that my mom and I labored over a few weeks ago has paid off!
