Roses

The rose bush we have is a tall, wicked sort of thing…sharp thorns everywhere. The top branches and blossoms are well over seven feet high. If the bugs don’t get the leaves, the plant is actually quite pretty…if you don’t have to touch it. It rained last night and was humid this morning so all of the … Read more
