We have Sunshine!
Today we were blessed with Sunshine! I went wandering about the flower gardens...checking on several plants. Some of my plants were not so healthy looking and may not survive this Winter but being the eternal optimist...I always give them until early June to recover.
During my wanderings, I noticed my "Double Knock Out" rose bushes and their new growth. Now mind you, these are babies and this is their first Winter under my care. They are hardy enough for our blazing hot summers. They are prolific bloomers from late Spring until the first freeze. I've seen this same rose growing around the DFW area and some reach a height of over 4 feet tall with the same diameter! These are the first roses that have survived my hyper TLC. They appear to be thriving even with all the snowy, freezing cold weather we've had.
I include them today for your enjoyment and we'll keep an eye on their development this year.
Well, since it's such a beautiful day, I'm off to play in the sunshine!
