My confidence level in gardening is still quite minimal. I never once thought the roses I had planted last fall would survive. They had arrived from the catalog company looking pitifully sickly. Then, I quickly noticed that the soil that we have might not be that conducive for roses. When the weather turned cold, the roses quickly turned downhill. So, I never once thought they would come back after the cold winter (actually, three of the six I planted didn’t make it). I have also purposely avoid checking on the part of my flower bed where the roses reside because I just knew they weren’t going to make it. Yesterday while weeding…. *gasp*…. Do you see what I saw?
These aren’t fancy roses. They are just some groundcover roses I thought I would start with to try out rose gardening. But at least the blooms are pink, and not my signature monochromatically purple, haha! But I am simply elated that the roses are blooming!
I don’t how this happens, but it seems like the past few Saturdays have been reserved for my posts on gardening. I thought I would keep up with the trend thus far, but I also know that this trend will disintegrate very quickly because there really isn’t much to tell on my front flower bed. So, if you would just play along, we will see how long this pattern lasts! :)
Take it easy, everyone, and have a wonderful weekend. I will be back on Monday.
