Roses Are Red

I had a thought. Maybe this year, instead of a rose bouquet, you like a rose bush.

Wouldn't it be fun to pick out a beautiful rose from a catalog (or online) and then buy & plant it this Spring in honor of Valentine's Day? You'll have romantic roses in the garden all Summer long.

This is very romantic suggestion. You could choose any variety you want: "Falling In Love", "Truly Yours", "Summer Love."

Tape a picture of it on the refrigerator and look forward to bloom after bloom.

(This rose is a David Austin English Rose that was named after David's mother, Lillian Austin.)

The Twelve Days of Valentines Day
Day 7: Plan to have flowers in your life - either by picking up a bouquet at the grocery store or by planning a symbolic planting this Spring.

Beautiful roses. My Pierre de Ronsard and Pinky climbing roses are flowering so there are a few blooms for inside as well. The Iceberg roses are flowering too. Roses are the one flower that I know how to grow!

Oh how I wish my roses were blooming right now! I guess that is what anticipation so sweet.
