Pictures of the Day

Master rosarian Mike Becker has more than 500 roses in the back yard of his home in Southlake, Texas: climbers, ramblers and miniatures; European classics and modern hybrids.  He’s won awards for ‘lavaglut,’ the second one featured below.  His used to be the largest private rose garden in Texas, until a tornado damaged over 200 plants a few years ago.  Regardless, it’s still more than a little impressive.  All photos courtesy Sonya N.
