Roses are Red

Yes, they most certainly are. I think some of these photos almost look fake. Like a black velvet painting... without the black.


  1. You know, I don't know the name. My mum and I found it languishing, half alive, in a tiny sliver of dirt up against our garage when we moved here (Oct. 2008). (no sun there at all) All that was there were two tiny, thorny sticks and about three leaves. So we ruthlessly pulled it up and put it in this new spot. We waited to see first if it would live, and then when I saw the first bud, there was great excitment to see what colour a rose it would be. It seems to me it has been thanking us ever since. And now I think it is pondering the idea of taking over that half of the yard completely! I will show you a full plant shot soon. Maybe we can figure out what it is called. I have seen some similar ones around town.
