In Full Bloom

Roses have always been my favorite flower. They were the flowers my parents gave me after dance recitals, the flowers that graced my grandmothers' and mother's garden, the flowers that I dried to draw, and (embarassingly) wear in my hair to school. I just love roses. 

I've never had much luck with keeping potted roses alive. I really don't think they're meant to live in pots anyways. And since we rent, I'm really not one to invest in a rose bush only to leave it behind when I move again.

Luckily, our new house has great big rose bushes. They've been badly pruned, but as soon as they came into bloom, I stopped worrying about that and stopped (to literally) smell the roses.
