It is a beautiful day in Texas. A gorgeous 71 degrees. The problem with these types of days is that it feels like spring but it's not.
We usually have a warm up this time of year but then we get hammered again with cold weather.
It had me thinking about flowers and since nothing is going on outside, I picked these up at the grocery store.
I plunked them in a large canning jar and this adorable basket from Walmart. The basket was only $2.98.
They still had them a few weeks ago if you hurry….
I wish I could grow roses.
My yard just doesn't have enough sun.
I know how to grow them, when to prune them etc.
I just don't have any luck with them.
I have some climbing roses in red that bloom once a year.
I never have to do a thing with them but they only bloom in April.
Growing tea roses? Not so much.
I do have one bush of miniature roses.
I got a small plant from one of my students years ago.
I planted it by chance and it has taken off.
One little tiny flower in a 3 inch pot became a bush three feet tall by four feet wide.
The roses above were from that bush.
They are the most beautiful in November when these pictures were taken.
Such a gorgeous shade of pink.
I don't know why November blossoms seem prettier than those from the rest of the season.
Is it because I know they are the last for the year?
We have been hit with some very cold weather.
(I think I lost my Asian Star Jamine in the Arctic Vortex.)
It hasn't been too bad of a winter but I just love spring.
How about you?
