If you've been following my blog this season, you would know that this spring has been unprecedented. Its been warm, gorgeous and just plain lovely. I purchased a rose bush at Lowe's and was SUPER nervous about it not surviving the skillz that this woman has at killing living plants. I left it indoors by our garage door for nearly two weeks. It started to sprout so I figured I should probably plant it outside. But I didn't follow any of the directions with mulch, tarps and vitamins. Maybe that's the reason I kill everything? I dug a hole, filled it with potting soil and plopped that sucker in there. Almost a month later.... and a few snow showers later and this is what surprised me tonight when I got home from running errands. It made me incredibly happy!
I am super excited for when we get back from Michigan. We are filling the garden beds in the front of our house with flowers. Sparkle and I planted some freesia about two months ago. We have plants about a foot tall, without any flowers yet. Some of the beds are doing better than others. One of the garden beds have a whole slew of plants. The previous homeowner said that they are four o'clocks. But there are two different plants and I have no idea which ones are which. Mulch and some gorgeous plants are in my future and I can't wait!
