Happy Cinco De Mayo

Happy Cinco De Mayo!














What better celebration than to share with you this row of Cinco de Mayo roses swirling their petals near the Cal Poly Farm Store in Pomona. Red roses can be hard to work with in the landscape, but not Cinco, because both warm and cool color tones blend within the flower folds, like chiffon over silk.
May everyone on the road with you tonight drive safely.

Lydia,
I don't know how I could have missed this Cinco de Mayo post. Those roses are beautiful! I may have to drive over to the Farm Store just to see them!!
