Everything's coming up roses

As most of you know, I will be having surgery next Monday to take my useless gallbladder out.  I haven't been feeling the best since my friend Tisha's birthday last month.  (Not that I am blaming you Tisha!!)  It has been a long, hard month (+ a few days, yes, I'm counting) with many ups and downs, and I am ready for the surgery.

Sadly, my sister pointed out, that I have been a little less funny since I haven't been feeling the best.  (Now, THAT, I can blame on my useless gallbladder!!)  Thanks for sticking with me, readers.  I swear, I'll bring the funny back.  Not the sexy, just the funny.  =)

Now, what you have all been waiting update on plants!  My rose bush out front has been taking off.  I did some major pruning this year, and have been trying some advice given to me by my friend Jess.  I can't wait to see how it improves from being a neglected plant.  Here is a pic of the large rose bush.
It shocked me, because last year I saw one sad bloom.  This year I see there are two different roses!
This small pink whatever kind of rose.
And the huge, white knock out roses.  As you can tell, I know absolutely nothing about roses.  I wouldn't be sad if this plant died, but I am trying my best to give it a boost!  There is another cute miniature rose bush out front too.

I'm not a really big fan of roses and there are way too many plants in a small space out front, but I don't want to dig it all out and start over.  It's too ridiculous to consider.

Unless you all want to come over and help...

Anyone?  Anyone??

Okay, FINE!  I'll keep all the plants I hate.  In the meantime, to keep my sanity, I'll have to just look out back and smile.


  1. Twinkly dwarves! Ok, I will stop :) I too had to embrace my pink (eew!) rosebushes, as that wouldn't have been my first landscaping choice. I have gotten plenty of compliments on them though and I'm sure you will on yours too - they are so pretty!

  2. I actually love roses and was anticpating planting some when I move into my own house! Maybe we can just transplant yours, since you hate them and all!! : )

  3. My front evergreen is definitely dead. Don't be surprised if you come home from surgery and there are a couple dwarfs missing :).
