Happy Sunday Everyone. I hope you are having a great weekend. If the sale of our house goes through, we will be moving into a cute two-bedroom rental that we own in Salinas until we figure out what we are doing. The climate there is a little chillier and a little foggier than it is here. There is a small courtyard garden in front and a smallish yard in back. It all needs to be redone after years of being rented. I plan to take you along that journey with me. Many of you often ask what are some easy-care roses. Three instantly come to mind. I don’t spray any of my roses, so if I plan to have any in Salinas they need to be easy-care. Let’s take a look at my five favorites-roses H&M & More
THREE EASY CARE ROSES YOU MIGHT WANT TO TRY
Iceberg is the only modern rose I have in my garden. I have a couple of standards that are 30 years old. It’s a great shrub, standard, and climber. Here is the standard form. The rose behind is a mystery rose. Below is nepeta fasseini another workhorse in my garden. I have had very good luck with all the roses I have purchased from David Austin Roses. You can purchase all three there.
Eden Rose. This rose is from the Romantica family. It now also comes in white. It blooms all season and has a nice scent.
The climber Sally Holmes. What I love about this rose is it can tolerate part shade as well.
OUTFIT OF THE WEEK-SPRING NEUTRALS FROM H&M
You all are always asking for a cheap chic outfit, so here you go. H&M does have some things that are of very good quality. I like their jeans. They are inexpensive and wear well. They have nice quality poplin shirts and isn’t that crochet bag darling. Someone asked for a neutral hat. This one is a fun alternative if you don’t want to spend a bunch of money. The sneaks look to be wide enough to accommodate a bunion. The trench is faux suede and has a great look. I have my eye on the cotton vest. The glasses I threw in for fun. Love the sweatshirt tunic as well! All items linked below.

BLACKENED SALMON TACOS WITH BLOOD ORANGES AND AVOCADO SALSA
These Tacos from Spices in my DNA sound fabulous. We are not big salmon lovers but these sound right up my alley.

On Tuesday Jennifer and I will be joining our friend Sandra for our monthly fashion edit. We will be talking about color in your wardrobe. We all need a little color right now, don’t we? Things are looking up! On another note, I am working with my ad network on making my ads less intrusive. If any of you are having issues and wouldn’t mind taking a screenshot and sending it to me, I would really appreciate it. Jennifer wrote a great article here on why we have to rely on ads in order to bring you quality material.
