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™‚
