April Rose



This is this Spring's very first pink bud on the antique Fairy Rose (1932) in my yard . . . I planted it last April, shortly following the death of my husband . . . this bud is about the size of the fingernail on my little finger . . . these miniature roses are just the perfect size for drying for use in tearbottles . . .

  1. Beautiful, Vickie. I did just pick up two little pink miniature rose plants over the weekend...my plan is to plant them both...one for your beloved Bennie in my garden tomorrow, and one for my beautiful mom that I have placed in a little pot inside my home...right next to her photo.
