Picture taken 1-4-2010 This is the Leonidas rose is the true color. The color for this rose will vary depending on temperature, etc...
2 years ago I almost didn't purchase this rose after hearing all the horror stories how difficult this rose can be to grow. But, you know me... I prefer to look for the positive and not dwell so much on the negative.
I have to admit this rose bush does require a little more TLC (tender loving care) compare to my other rose bushes but, it is so worth it! No regrets what so ever.

Concrete stringer bridge over Eaton Canyon Wash on Mt. Wilson Toll Road in Angeles National Forrest.
Closed to public traffic.

As we were hiking up the trail we came across this...
hmm, makes you wonder...

Taking a brief rest to admire the view, then we continue with our hike up.
John was amazed just how far up we hiked...

Happy New Year! 2010

H appiness depends upon your outlook on life.
A ttitude is just as important as ability.

Y ears go by to quickly, enjoy them.
E nergy may you have lots of it.
A ppreciation of life, don't take it for granted.
R elax take the time to relax in this coming year.
