rose bud

the winter beat most of the roses right down to the ground.  still they are not about to give up.  they are sprouting.  new growth is coming up from the base of the plants that survived.  there is something neat about the fresh red growth of roses.  the flower is forming already.

        Approaching Winter (down under); I’ll enjoy it more than I do our hot Summer. Enjoy your warm weather 🙂

      Jim, It was a very rough year on roses, hydrengia, and a few other shrub type plants. It is really strange how one winter will affect certain plants and not others. Affect them to the point where ‘sheltered’ plants with what one would think are more favorable protection from winter end up doing worse than more exposed plants. I am just glad spring is really here. It was a long time coming this year.

    Over the years of replacing bits of fence and other major upheavals in surrounding plants lives, i have concluded that the more brutal you are with a rose, the more happily it springs back into life.

      hilary – that is true of so many plants. daylilies included. I have a several that were dug up and the soil ball was set somewhere in the garden – over winter – and the plants are doing fine. blooming even.

      So glad you enjoy it ! There are things that each of us have not seen yet. Things that are outside of our circle of experience. Things that are good to experience and stretch our circles in new ways. Thanks for your comment !
