Roses and Glass

I have a terrible confession to make. I almost feel guilty saying it. I have a BLACK thumb. My best attempts at keeping alive anything green usually result in disaster. It seems the harder I try the faster the poor plant dies. But….regardless of my past failures, I decided I was really going to try and grow roses. I love roses and would love to a small rose garden. So, Mr. Austin…here I come. Well the good news is YEAH! They’re not dead! I planted at least 6 hybrid rose bushes and roses did appear! As if magic! I decided to photograph some flowers just to show the world, Yes I have a green thumb( even if it’s a forest green)!

A Rose Poem

Today I was going to plant my roses. I’m new at rose gardening, I  decided it might be a great gardening activity, keep me outside longer. We bought an older home 2 years ago and it needs some yard work. So I bought roses; climbing roses, rose bushes and rose ground cover. But after all this beautiful weather it’s supposed to freeze this week. So I’m going to wait a few days. So instead I took a photo of a miniature rose I have in my craft room. So here’s a little photo with a little rose poem to go along. Have a blessed Sunday everyone.

 

 

A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns
O my Luve’s like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly played in tune.As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it ware ten thousand mile.
