Here is a great treat! I found this site this morning and just had to browse the marvelous photos. This post is of a flower market in Guadalajara, Mexico. I do love Mexico and all things Mexican—so I’m happy to look around. These photos are great! Be sure to click on one of the photos so as to get the slide show—and be prepared to say WOW!!! Thanks to the blogger for permission to repost…
This is the biggest flower market in Guadalajara, and the best place to go on Valentines day. It is across the street from the Cemetary, so people can buy flowers for the departed. It has stores that face the street Federalismo, and more and more stores as you walk a block behind the storefronts. My favorite part is the open air Flower Market and watching the trucks unload flowers in bulk.
These photos of my Knockout Roses were taken last weekend. The Japanese Beetles, which had effectively destroyed these beautiful roses, finally left the area, so recovery is possible. These bushes were spectacular in May and June, the beetles visited in July, and by the first week in August they were gone.

My favorite roses, I call them “peppermint roses.”
Does anyone remember this old nonsense rhyme?
Moses supposes that roses are toeses
but Moses supposes erroneously.
I snapped this photo this afternoon, just as it was starting to drizzle. These roses, which go by the name “Knockout Roses,” named for their bright fuscia color. They are everywhere in this area of Ohio, and one of their delights is their staying-power. They bloom profusely, and continuously–until they freeze. A draw-back is that Japanese beetles enjoy the beautiful roses too, and enjoy them way too much some years. But even after the blooms are devoured by the beetles, they come back in full strength in about a month. This year, 2015, the beetles were absent, or at least I didn’t see any of them.
These blossoms were discreetly trying to survive just a bit longer, under cover of some yet-green leaves.
