One of my neighbors has the most marvelous rose garden. It reminds me of the rose bushes my mother used to grow behind our house in Dallas.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    We have lots of roses in our yard. Some of them shrivel up and die, of course, being Las Vegas. However, some shrivel up and start to die but for some weird reason, turn into red climbing roses. Every one of them. Never figured that out. Now a lot of our former big whatever roses have turned into red climbing roses. We still have a few original survivors, but it’s hard to keep them going here in the heat.

      It’s amazing where roses will grow. I remember being so surprised when we moved up to Massachusetts about the number of roses still around as late as November. You’d think they’d be done by then, but nope, a few hardy souls were still lingering past Halloween. I am looking forward to discovering how long the rose season is here. There are many more in bloom than I would have expected.
