About this blog

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

This is a diary of my rose breeding efforts - I hope that you will enjoy it and join me on this endless journey.

Although I have been interested in breeding roses for quite some time, it wasn't until 2006 that I finally crossed my first rose. The result was a tiny, off-white, semi-double flower and, to be honest, it wasn't really anything special. However, I still remember how excited I was to see the seeds that led to it germinate and start growing for the first time.

So I thought that it would be fun to share that joy, as well as information about what new roses are born here in my yard. Every rose is totally original and one of a kind, and I think they deserve to be introduced!

Another reason that I decided to start blogging about my roses is that I hope to connect with lots of great folks out there who share the same interest - I would very much appreciate your comments and opinions!
