This past weekend was my mothers family reunion which Jason & I hosted this year. (pictures soon hopefully). As I was walking around enjoying my family I happen to catch a spot of color out of the corner of my eye. As I turned my head I was floored. I couldn't believe it. With everything being so busy this summer I hadn't noticed the dead rose bush, the one I've neglected to remove for the last 2 years, was growing and now had two hot pink buds on it!! Unfortunately the beetles got to one of the blooms. Here is the remaining bloom.
I'm sure there's a message in here somewhere about when something dies it doesn't really die, or some such crazy thing. Not sure what it is, I'm just glad I was lazy about removing the "allegedly" dead rose bush.
