Roses @ Havre De Grace, Maryland

The charming and quaint town of Havre de Grace boasts a lighthouse, shops, history, beach, boating, and roses. Be sure to walk the promenade along the water starting at Friends-Concord Point Lighthouse to Millard Tydings Memorial Park. There you will find not only the lighthouse, but a plethora of hot pink Knock Out rose bushes along your path as well as the serenity of the adjoining waters of the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay.

Travels With Roses

After selling our sailboat we lived on for a couple of years in Texas, I gave away many of my plants, but some are traveling with us as we sojourn to Maryland. My back seats are folded down so I could bring two potted rose bushes (significantly pruned to fit), some herbs, succulents, a watering can, my Felco pruners, synthetic oil just in case and some clothes and cleaning stuff too. The rest of our belongings have been shipped. Meanwhile, due to COVID19, I’ve been disinfecting each hotel room’s remote, light switches, door knobs, etc and watering my plants at rest stops. Free puppy pads are underneath the plants so they don’t drain on/in the car.

Just like you don’t leave your pets behind when you move, you don’t leave behind your plants either…especially roses!
