Happy Cinco de Mayo (flower style)

rosa rose conco de mayo

While I am not really a huge rose fan, I do love the the color of Rose Cinco de Mayo…rust and smoke along with hints of orange and lavender…how many flowers can you describe like that?   Are you doing anything special for the holiday? — I am allowing my children to have nachos for dinner.  Oh, we are so excited.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Gorgeous – never seen that one before.

    Nachos, Schmachos – mine are having fish fingers and chips!

    Margaritas, of course freah and limey – everything else is secondary….
    Another nice feature about this cinco de mayo rose is its open structure, making it easier for the little pollinators to get in there and do their thing.

    Wow! Great shot. The color is gorgeous. I swore no more roses this year, but…
