Leaves and Roses

Posted by Lissa on March 24, 2011

I potted a mini rosebush two days before Christmas so that my front walk would have some decoration. Naturally, I bought the plant with the most blooms (3). Since December and January are — y’know– WINTER, I promptly lost all but one bloom and got stuck with just a bush.

That’s why I was so pleased when it started sprouting new blooms. Now I had four flowers! Now five! Holy yellow roses, Batman!

And then the leaves started splotching brown and black and falling off. So now I’ve got bushels of flowers and no leaves. Guess I can’t have both at once.

Damn you, Black Spot mold!

    I have a special place in my heart for yellow roses. They remind me of my dad.

    Thanks for posting that picture.

    Dust the rose bushes for black spot.

    But isn’t it awesome to have flowers instead of snow?
