Spring is just starting here in the Southern hemisphere.
But even the mornings are very cold.
But the most beautiful are the roses that have begun to bloom little by little. When we arrived at this house there was nothing, absolutely nothing around, no plants, trees, or flowers.
The house was abandoned several years.(all these was about 10 years ago)
And these roses were brought to me( 10 years ago) by a lady who lived close our house and said :
you have to plant these roses, are amazing.
They are like a miracle. They have also multiplied over these years.
