Comin’ up roses

When we were in Kenya we had the privilege of being given a tour around one of their many rose farms. It was a really special opportunity and amazing to see the process from beginning to end, and to learn about how many factors are at play to produce these beautiful roses. I really enjoyed taking photos there, and hope you enjoy viewing them πŸ™‚

 

Grafting the new stems onto old roots…
A little bit more growth a few tents on.

 

 

 

 

Β All the plastic pipes used to graft.

 

 

 

 

 

Reaching for the sky…

 

 

 

 

Appropriately named I think πŸ™‚

 

Roses in cold rooms right after being picked.

 

Stem measuring…

 

Ready for delivery.

 

The beautiful roses in the reception – they cost about R15 there!

 

And here they are, just up the road from our home πŸ™‚
