“Everything’s coming up roses…” (Contest)
Tuesday, May 4th, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Mary McCoy!

That song too old for you to know it? How about some Bruno Mars… “Lookie here, lookie here, now what do I see?”

It’s my blog, I get to tell this story…

See this pretty rose?

It’s the first rose from a bush my daughter transplanted right before that weird, arctic cold snap we had back in February. She moved it from her previous home to replant it here, just to have something from the old homestead since the new owners aren’t into gardening and plucked up every plant in their yard. This one was old, having been planted by a woman who lived in the house before my dd, who has since deceased. Back when the bush lived across the street, it was leggy, had few blooms, and looked very, very sad. When that winter freeze hit, we thought for sure the bush was doomed because it was only newly in the ground and had been severely cut back.

Well, it survived and has so many buds! Here’s one ready to open any day now…

The roses are going to be abundant, and I really think they love their new home in our garden. I’ve been busy buying rosebushes for my dd since she loves them so much, but I need to think about some other flowering lovelies we can plant here in Arkansas that can stand up to the heat. Any suggestion for things that will look pretty in her flower beds? Leave a suggestion, and you’ll be entered to win a $5 Amazon gift card!
