I've been away.
Planting flowers. Weeding. Watering.
Seems like its been forever. I will do better. (I Hope!)
The rose bush we planted over 7 years ago finally decided to bloom. Yes. Bloom! There were 5 buds in all. Every night just before going to bed, we covered each bud with half a sock to keep the frost away. We did this faithfully. We were rewarded with lovely pink blooms. Absolutely lovely! Take a look.
