Our roses say autumn is just fine for blooming. Up front and out back. The seasons, plural, suit us fine.
I’m happy when the big corner rose bush up front takes its turn making our yard look spiffy. It’s a tough year for roses, we were told by the local experts when we visited this spring’s fair at the Liverpool Public Library. Tomorrow, you get to see our backyard roses.
It’s time to start watching and actively rooting for the April front-yard rose transformation.
Walking the property during a holiday break from work, I noticed the big front yard rose trying mightily to defy the winter calender and the snow on the lawn. It may go green yet. Hey, this is Central New York, if you get my drift.
When we pulled into our driveway from our 10-day Cape Cod Getaway 2021, we were greeted by the first blooms of the front yard corner knockout rose bush. That was a fantastic first smile at A Bitty Better.
The front corner rose bush has made it through another winter, we think, hope, pretty much know. Thank you, nature.
Even when it’s not kicking out the red roses by the boat load, the front yard red bush won’t lie completely still.
The red rose bush in the front yard is making us happy again this season. That corner location works so well.
The green stems on our lovely corner rose bush up front have added growth. Leaves have arrived as we welcome May. Soon, I hope, red blooms.
They’re not near the flower stage yet, but I am heartened by the greening state of our rose bush branches as mid-April nears. The big specimen up from looks great as it starts year two of its life in our yard.
