Set 1 of Photographs of Erika's Summer Roses
Bob Jensen at Trinity University 


I cover Erika's domestic roses in mulch and burlap during the winter months

Then they, along with the peonies and impatiens, come to life in the long days of summer up here
Note the climbing roses on the arbor


Note the honey bee who probably appreciates the nectar rather than the surrounding beauty

Here are two Erika brought into the house
She loves roses whereas I love impatiens for the sun

Japanese beetles never seem to bother the Inpatiens or wild roses
But it's a daily World War II to save the domestic roses

A yellow rose of Texas in the mountains of New Hampshire

This was taken in a year when I planted more alysum and yellow bidens surrounding a rose bush

Early morning shot with dew on the petals

Here's a picture taken by professional photographer Wes Lavin who often returns
up here for his fine pictures

Here's the woman who grows the roses beside our cottage and the guy who pulls weeds

It's so hard to keep up with the neighbors in this Tacoma block

Are their trails in our White Mountains of New Hampshire that have ice in summer as well as winter?
See "The Ice Gulch, Would I do it Again" by John Compton, August 5, 2011 ---

Okay, you might ask, is there really ice in the Ice Gulch, even in August? Yes, there is! The next photo shows one small patch of ice. There were many larger patches, but they were at the bottom of some of those deep gaps that I mentioned above. I took some photos, but none of them really turned out, even with using a flash to illuminate these dark, dank, deep spots.
