garden tuesday...on friday


well, it was raining on tuesday

this is my chameleon rose



it didn't look like this last year and I was going to put it out of its misery

amazing what a difference a little care and attention makes

these little pretties fade to a soft pale creamy apricot


sewing is finally happening here with these cute fabrics

i'm stitching...i'm stitching...i'm stitching

  4. That rose is beautiful! I'm glad you didn't put it out of it's misery! And what are those fabrics...Christmas perhaps? What a tease, though I'm happy to hear you're sewing! Soon you'll have more for us to show, I hope.

  8. Gorgeous rose! Love the color combo. Did you know that you can refurbish old roses simply by cutting them back to ground level? Did you get more rain than usual this year? We did and my big rose bush is now two feet taller than it's ever been! (It usually reaches 6 feet)
