i have a new found obsession. gardening. yes ! you did hear me correctly … i am a budding horticulturist who just can’t get enough. it is incredibly satisfying seeing immediate progress. i have been weeding until the cows come home & it feels gooooood. i also love the anticipation … waiting for the first buds of a plant to come out – it is extra exciting because i have not seen our garden in full bloom yet. spring is so close & i am jumping out of my skin waiting to see the flowers in our garden. i have just discovered that our crawling rose has started to bloom. i feel like popping some champagne & eating prawns. yippee !
on the weekend we did heaps more gardening. it was crazy fun because we were in the front yard so all the neighbours’ kids came over. i just love it. they are the sweetest kids around & our joey & the baby love them all.
mum gave me a yellow rose from my sister’s garden to plant in ours. it has been potted for a few months and so it looks like it has died. but i still have hope. the baby & i decided to plant it the other day. it looks like she shares the same passion for gardening as her mama :) i have been watering the rose religiously since planted – it is in a good sunny spot.
Do you have any good advice for caring for a rose??
