Outdoor Wednesday...

We were going to my two sons baseball tournament in Wasco, where is Wasco? Well about an hour away in the boonies. So of course I have my camera, and I ask my son to take pictures...
grapes, yea seen those before...
pistashios, seen them too...
black eyed beans (yuk) seen that too...but wait what is that ahead, all this color, oh I know what those are...ROSES!!!!

Its about a 1000 acres of roses, who knew...

little tree roses, these were only two feet high, and about an inch around...

just beautiful...

I wish there was free samples...

even smaller tree roses...

rose bushes...


you know where I will be next year...

this was the only time my boys have ever got to be on the same team, we lost, but seeing them play together and the beautiful suprise of roses made it a great day!!
Happy Outdoor Wednesday and thank you Susan for hosting.

  5. You must have had a nearly perfect day!

    The roses are amazing.
    I'll have to show my horticulture son the rose trees.
    He is going to make a coleus tree.

  6. Dear Stefanie,
    It is a good day, I would think when both boys play on the same team.....we only have one adult son and a daughter but my son had so many soccer games...I can't imagine if I had 2 boys but I love baseball.
    The roses were beautiful...and a surprise for sure.....that is not something you would see every day
    i loved seeing the pistacho orchard....I have never seen that tree....in Oklahoma we have lots of pecan orchards

  19. Those roses are amazing! It's so much fun to think that someone actually grows roses as a crop. Must be wonderful to be a rose farmer!
