I’m Still Not Promising Myself A Rose Garden

It hasn’t really been warm enough this year to spend any time on the balcony, but I have been keeping an eye out for the roses I planted last summer, seeing how they were getting on.  Through the window.  Once in a while.

Being proud that they survived the winter.

Then the other day I went outside and took a closer look.

My, look how green and healthy thos…

HEY!  THOSE AREN’T ROSES!

They’re weed.  And not the funny kind.

So I set off weeding today.

 So sad.  Sad sad sad.

Off to the garden center to buy some new ones.  Since the Pink Fairies and Vikings I got last year weren’t hardy enought, I got a Moje Hammerberg and a Heidi Klum.  I’m assuming nothing is as hardy as Heidi Klum.

I kept the bit of the Viking that was still kinda alive.

The third rose I got last year is still actually kinda living.  And flowering.

Anyway, this is what Moje and Heidi will look like in only weeks!  Allegedly!

Gardening is so much drama.
