Painting Roses

Now that I only have two roses to tend to on my Myrtle Beach balcony (compared to my once sprawling rose garden I sold in Pennsylvania), I find myself longing to capture the thrill of more bountiful blooms. In the past, I would photograph my own roses constantly posing in my garden or travel to the nearby Hershey Gardens to film the pleasantry of petals, but considering the nearest rose garden is approximately 2 hours away, I ponder the possibilities of painting roses instead.  Thankfully, YouTube provides much guidance and inspiration as I embark on creating and collecting a unique rose garden…on paper!

Tyler, Texas Rose Garden (video)

Have you ever been to Tyler, Texas’ Municipal Rose Garden? This gem is on my must visit list! In the coming weeks, my husband and I most likely will be going to Texas to help Hurricane Harvey survivors clean up and rebuild. I’m hoping we can visit this gorgeous garden in our travels. Watch the video to learn about how the garden started and how she blooms today.

Video: Up Down All Around

Last year, I made this recording for my radio show called “In the Garden with Carrie Renee Turner” heard over the airways on 106.1 FM in York, Pennsylvania. Recently, I collaborated my radio recordings while adding pictures of my rose photography for YouTube.

May you always be “ever-blooming”!
