Roses in Bloom - The Daily Bloom. We have several different roses but I am not certain of the proper names of them. In this post, I present a small gallery of photos of those which are blooming right now. I hope these pictures bring you some of the joy that the actual blooms bring to Viv & me. NOTE.. click the link to view the full gallery.
Cherokee Rose - The history of the Cherokee Rose is very interesting. Legend says that the name comes from the "Trail of Tears" forced relocation of the Cherokee tribes to Oklahoma. See the site for more photos and additional information.
White Turmeric (Curcuma zedoaria). AKA, "Hidden Ginger." The tuberous rhizomes are white (rather than orange like many Turmeric tubers.) Visit the website to see all the beautiful photos of this amazing plant! I also include info about food and medical uses and how to grow it.
