My Uncle Sal was the original Mr. Natural, with a garden that anyone would envy. Flowers, fruits (including a beautiful big fig tree – in New England), vegetables, his grass – his thumb must have been as green as the deepest emerald and just as valuable.
These roses, originally a small cutting from his garden, now grow gloriously against a trellis in my mother’s garden.
