Roses 2010

My roses are in bloom for the spring.

I've had trouble with aphids and beetles already. That usually doesn't happen quite so soon.

This little orange rose below has only bloomed once or twice in nine years. My friend gave it to me for my birthday a year after my mother passed away. It bloomed then but otherwise never did well. It was in the front yard. This year I dug it up and moved it to the back yard with my other roses. It seems to be doing much better.

This rose bloom was so heavy the stem could not hold it up.


  1. My one rose bush in the front is doing awesome this year. They are very small, wine-colored. I have some others, yellow, peach, but this particular one is filled with roses for some reason this year.

    I love your orange one.
