Fresh from the garden :)

Hello everyone πŸ™‚ I hope you are enjoying the last bits of summer!

I was so excited about this, I just had to share! Yours truly, has a very nasty track record of killing off almost every plant she comes in contact with. So you can imagine my fear and frustration when I spent a ton of money I didn’t have on bulbs and roots for pretty plants and flowers I feared I would ultimately murder.

But look-y what happened! I planted tons of lily and gladiolus bulbs (being consoled by friends and family the entire time that they would not sprout until next year) and 3 peace rose ‘bushes’ (nope, not bushes…really tiny sticks with a root-y part). I only managed to ‘over-love’ one of the rose bushes that just didn’t make it. But two of them did, as did some of the lilies!

So here is a photo of my first Massive peace rose from my baby stick and a beautiful lily next to it. No, the lily isn’t miniature, the rose is HUGE. YYYYEEEAAA! Who’s your gardening lady now?!

How’s your garden growing?

  1. Beautiful! Such a pretty colour, like raspberry ripple ice cream! My mother has a wonderful lilac rose that I envy..I bought some similar bushes and I’ve managed to…over-love all of them. *sigh* Well done, beautiful rose!

      Thank you! I love your description…raspberry ripple – yummy…. I know what you mean. My mothers garden is gorgeous. My place looks like a flower cemetery. But we are correcting that – one plant at a time. Keep trying!

    How gorgeous! I have a “black thumb”, almost everything dies at my touch. But I have a Northwood pine and plant from the rubber family, pretty bad I can’t remember the name of it. Mostly though only the plants survive if I can put them outside and forget about them. So I take my hat off to you!
