May 2008 - Rose Garden

May in Arizona is the transition month - we go from nice and warm to REALLY HOT. Shanna and I spent the last few months reworking our front landscaping and added 50+ rose bushes. I am curious to see how they will make it through the HOT Arizona summer.

Yellow GoldShanna joind the local Rose Club and has rekindled her long time interest in growing roses. Back in the day, she won awards for her roses when we lived in CA. So she has learned the tricks for growing roses in AZ and we have spent the last few months planting and watering. As watering is key, I used all of my "engineering know-how" to come up with an automated system that can adjust to the crazy AZ springtime weather.

I took a few photos and put them in a photo album, Click here to see them.
