My First Rose

Does this look a little greener to you?

I have always enjoyed gardening, but an expert gardener I am not. I have never, ever in my entire life claimed to having a green thumb, quite the contrary. So when something in my petite jardin blooms it is a HUGE deal to me...

My sweet father-in-law gave me this rose plant about a year ago and it hadn't bloomed since...I have always considered roses a very difficult plant to keep and I never thought it would make it under my non-green thumb's care much less bloom....So this is a GIANORMOUS deal to me...

MY VERY FIRST ROSE EVER!....

Isn't she absolutely beautiful?

And I would love to share it with all of you, my sweet blogging friends.

Wishing everyone a very beautiful new week.





Hugs and Kisses,

Congratulations Ana! your first rose is very pretty. Buy some rose food at the store and feed according to directions and you'll see that thumb getting greener!
Have a lovely day!

She is a beautiful rose. Isn't it a wonderful feeling to see the first flower of a plant. It's almost like giving birth, but without all the pains. HA! HA!
