Rose Season Starting
There was one already established in the front corner by the driveway when we moved in & I spent a lot of time last year pruning out all the dead branches. I think I may have removed at least half the plant by the end of the season.
As a reward for pruning and some fresh soil, this rose bloomed and bloomed and bloomed! It currently is just starting to share some flowers and I can see that it is going to be very prolific again.
I wonder if roses like having their flowers cut for indoor arrangements & produce heavier as a result....
This variety looks like a tea rose mutant. Compact bush with slightly fragrant flowers. Once the rain stops, I'll go & cut myself a small bouquet to bring in and admire.
There are more plants out in the gardens that are blooming. Can't wait to share!
