I took this photo in June of 2007. This rose bush was a bargain purchased on clearance a couple of years ago and it has become one of my best flowers.
I bought another rose bush this year – a pink one. I’m going to wait to plant it until the middle of the month. I hope it does as well. I planted three year before last that did nothing. Of course, I’m sure that was a problem with the bushes and not me. Right?
You may remember I wrote about pruning this one this spring, before it started getting green. I tried reading online about when to prune and I read everything. So, I decided to just do it and see what happened. Well, I’m happy to report that pruning in the spring, before it gets green, is apparently OK, because it has lots of green leaves all over it now.
