Third Annual Corrales Rose Society Dr Huey Tour

Our giant Dr Huey back lit by the early morning sunshine

 

We are doing our 3rd Annual Corrales Rose Society Dr. Huey Tour today.  Dr Huey is the root stock used for most roses in the Southwestern US, and when the rose that is grafted to Dr Huey dies, Dr Huey often thrives. Corrales has an abundance of Dr Hueys because of our cold winters and late frosts. While most rosarians don't care for the sight of Dr Huey, we and the Corrales Rose Society love him.

 

The entrance to the walkway that leads to our front door along the west side of the house. The arch is covered by red roses we got for free, but we don't know their names.

 

These are a bed of iris I planted all together after I dug them up to run new underground wiring when we got an electrical upgrade in 2012. There is a Dr Huey in the middle of the iris.

Now that Dr Huey is gorgeous. I don't know if I have heard of that before. As for that red rose with no name .. that is just splendid!

Wild running roses are our favourites. Your first Dr Huey photo is very atmospheric.
