An Heirloom Rosebush – Bagicha Bazaar



We’re in Norwalk, Ohio today with Judy Kirby.

My husband and I have lived in our house for over 20 years, and this rose bush has always been here. I just built my new flower beds around it. I had an old lady stop by the house in 2000 and tell me that her father planted these roses when she was a child. Knowing some history makes me fall in love with this rose bush even more. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Near the bright pink rose bushMany older roses bloom only once in early summer but have a lot of blooms to make up for it.
