she just won't quit!!

she was quite the neglected rose bush....sat in a container all summer long until my neighbor gave it to me and asked 'can you save it'? so i tried i soaked it in a bucket of water for a few days and then stuffed her in the small new raised bed (which still needs mulch!) and in a week she just took off-new leaves-and buds all over the place there is a hint of spice to her blooms-she is starting to loose her leaves but adding more buds....the yellow orange buds open to this wonderful pink rose....can't wait to see the show she will put on next year :)

You go girl!!! Smart move to soak her in water for a few days! You saved her! She looks beautiful...how cool to be orange and yellow on the outside and turn to a beautiful pink rose! And she smells like spice...yum!!!

I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures of her next year!
