7th Annual Corrales Rose Society Dr. Huey Tour: Lockdown Edition

2020 brings us the lockdown edition of the annual Corrales Rose Society Dr. Huey tour. For our 7th annual tour, we Facetimed with Susan while we walked around our garden admiring our ever-growing collection of Dr. Hueys.

Note on editor: I used the basic editor found in my Admin section under Posts. It’s a very basic editor, which I like, and the default adds a link to the photos so you can view them larger, a feature the current editor striped out. I can’t easily do mosaics from this editor, but that’s no big deal. I like basic and simple.

    • Oh, I see. Corrales near ABQ. Love the Southwest, and look forward to getting back there. Grew up in Texas, Denver for 20 years, Satan Fe, NM for 4+ years, and mistakenly OFL โ€” Opportunity For Learning moved out East. Looking forward to being back there for good, as I will soon have a cabin in Red River, NM. LOVE LOVE LOVE these photos!

      • Way back in the day, when I was racing bicycles, the Tour de Taos went over Bobcat Pass. The last one I rode I finished 7th overall. The rider I domestiqued won that year.

      • Makes me wonder if you rode with my Dad. He was a marathoner and 100-mile bike racer into his 70s… typically would beat people in their 30s.. of which I heard about very… shalll we say… clearly. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I was doing serious racing in the late 1980s early 1990s. There were/are so many fit old guys and gals. The master’s class was one of the toughest in amature racing. I have friends who raced cat 3 races instead of the master’s class so they could be competitive.

      • ๐Ÿ™‚ Big time :). My Dad would go out or a casual run, and then return an hour or so after when I expected him, and heโ€™d smile to me and my StepMom with, โ€œHeck, it was such a nice day, I just took a different route. Started a=out as 10 miles though mow Iโ€™m back here, 17 miles later. Shall we have red or white this afternoon on the deck?โ€ Gotta love that. Fit old guys n gals racing.

      • Been there, done that on a bike many times. We still go out for short walks that end up long walks. Or like tonight, we spent a lot of time with the owlets as they were very active flying around from branch to branch in the tree tops.

      • Oh, thatโ€™s some great stuff. I look forward to being back at the cabin if for nothing else than those serendipitous gigs. Owlets. Thatโ€™s some wondrous experience. Yes, makes walks โ€œlongerโ€ for all the right reasons.

      • ๐Ÿ™‚ Took a couple of posts, though that just gave me a cool, forensic field trip where I got more just for taking the time and looking.

  1. The 7th and Lockdown 2020 Edition was so unique in some ways and so wonderful to carry on the tradition. Another New Mexico experience…Thanks to you and Laurie ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wonderful, these huge Dr. Huey rose-bushes!

    I hope, the “WP Admin”-way to the nice and simple editor I am used to, will not disappear, then I will be fine with all that block-stuff.

  3. Thanks for giving us this beautiful annual Corrales Rose Society Dr. Huey tour.

    Off topic: I noticed that ‘likes’ I’m leaving behind and various blogs are gone the next day, vanished in thin air. Oh well, I’m not going to report this to WP. It’s all to exhausting for my mind…

    • Thanks, Herman. It gets to a point in seems to hardly matter. But it is frstrating to no end.

    • I’ve had the same problem, Herman. With comments, in particular – not only here with WP, but at other sites too. Also, it seems to have increased over the past 6-8 months … so it is not a pandemic thing.

  4. Dr. Huey blossoms are gorgeous! So, it was Dr. Huey’s blooms I was looking at, not my incognito pear tree! Hmmm… I thought they were odd pear blooms! Got to get me a new pair of specs! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. A beautiful tour, Tim. I particularly like the arch. I need to check whether the red ones here are Doctor Huey… a couple of them are sprawling. Have a peaceful Memorial Day. Hugs on the wing.

  6. Once again, I have learned something new from a blogging friend. Before today, I had never heard of Doctor Huey. What a beauty! And what a splendid place to talk on the phone.

    • Dr. Huey is the root stock used in the southwest. We actually have a rose on the edge of the property that is eastern root stock. It’s been there forever and ever.

  7. Nice tour, Tim.

    Over at our old house, Megan called if it was okay for her to trim our Dr. Huey bushes. I told her to trim away as needed. Both had dead canes that needed to be trimmed out.

    • Hi David. You can’t do much to hurt Dr. Huey he’s one tough rose bush. I’ve dug out Dr. Huey and apparently didn’t get all the roots because he grew back. Very persistent.

      • Faring quite well and avoiding the big city and narrow aisled stores! We have to break down and take our pets to the vet for checkup, shots and scripts but the clinic is doing that without us going inside! We also are doing curbside service for groceries. A new focus on expanding our garden and making our own food. But lots of time for painting and less traveling for what we saw previously as necessities! Thx for asking – most thoughtful of you! Be well friend and stay inspired. I’m always inspired when I visit your cornucopia of new photos! – Douglas

      • Happy to hear you are doing well. Our vet has been doing curbside drop off. It’s quite convenient. I drop off the kitties on the way to work and pick them up on the way home.

        I posted a video with original music that’s a bit on the avant-garde side of things last night.

  8. Dr. Huey is a Roses Rock Star!
    I use Classic Editor, and it allows for blow-ups of smaller pics.
    I wonder if “Themes” are partly responsible for certain things?

    • Hi Resa. Themes definitely effect what you put together in the editor and what the final post looks like.

  9. Tim, Interestingly enough, I am moving to Taos this summer. Initially, I will land at the cabin in Red River, so that I can find a place in Taos in person. I was poking around on the net with Taos and you came to mind, so I added you into the Google Oracle. Big smiles that the 1st choice was this post… where I said last May 2020 I was moving back. Big smile, as I just decided when recently, within the last 2 weeks. So, I figured I would circle back around and say Thank You! This post planted a seed last year that has burst its nose forth into the light like a purple-nosed Crocus as Spring sprung. Excellent stuffstance.
