My Lonely Rose

We have a rose bush in front of our house. My mother has claimed to "kill" this bush many times, and we really don't take care of it, but every year it surprises us by coming back to life and gives us just a little pop of color. My one bloom looks so out of place on a brown, bare bush ... but it is very pretty!  It makes me smile every time I pull into the driveway.

It is in sort of a weird spot though (which does explain the many encounters the bush has had with a lawn mower.)  Hubby and I are thinking of trying to re-locate it to a different spot.  In my mind, this is just another way of trying to "kill" the plant again ... but just maybe it will persevere through this new ordeal.  I don't know that I will though.  I'm not a gardening sort of person.  Anyone know how to replant a rose bush without bleeding to death?



  1. Gardening gloves maybe? Really, I don't know either. I suck at gardening.

    1. Thanks Misha ... maybe they make special gloves just for roses. :-)


Thank you for visiting me and leaving a comment about my stuff. :-)
