For all of the care that I have been putting in the garden – NONE – I am quite pleased that the roses still give blooms. I say, they bloom more now that I left them alone – than when I fussed constantly about them. The garden, or what is supposed to be one, is a sorry sight these days. I have not weeded in a long time. I blame the schoolwork that we have to do during the day for my ‘laziness’. When the school year began, I prioritized my activities. Gardening and yard maintenance did not make the cut. I have easier days but I have to grit my teeth when I see the weeds choking my plants. I guess it’s a good thing that the tomatoes did not produce as well as I hoped. I saved some canning time.
Ooopss. I am meandering. 😉 I just wanted to share photos of the roses that bravely thrived in abandonment. 🙂 I hope they bring you joy as they do to me.
