I, however, DO NOT have a green thumb. At least not when it comes to flowers. For some reason I just cannot make flowers do well. I think it's sad, because I really, really love flowers and I love having flowers in my yard, but unless it's something that you plant for a short growing season they just won't hardly make it here.
I have (in my 13 years of living here) managed to keep one rosebush alive and it's blooming, and it's beautiful, and I thought I would share pictures.
|My "Joseph's Coat" rosebush. Usually there are at least three (sometimes) four colors on this bush at one time. This is my favorite rosebush. Of course it's the only one that's actually mine :)|
|This is Amanda's "Joseph's Coat" rosebush. It's about three years "younger" than mine. See how big it is? Yeah, it's the whole "green thumb" thing again ;)|
|I don't know the "official" name of this rose, but I think it's pretty. It's also Amanda's. So far, my little "Joseph's Coat" rose is the only one I've ever been able to keep alive for more than a few weeks. I'm just NOT good with flowers!|
