Ole, Sven and Lena

Ole, Sven and Lena jokes

It’s time to rerun some of my favorite blooms from the 2013 season, since none are blooming in my cool winter garden that is light starved. When I lived in Minnesota people would tell really clever joke stories about Ole, Sven and Lena. During the early 2000’s the University of Minnesota had a rose hybridizing program and named three small shrub/polyantha roses Ole, Sven and Lena. The roses are nostalgic for me and always bring back memories of my life far away.
