Abraham, Roses and Me
As I get to grips with gardening, I am discovering why standard roses are desirable - easy to weed around. Perhaps this should have been planted closer to the wall - again, easier to weed around. Though, I am loving the sneaky iris stems that make their way through the rose bush and the aquilegias that pop up everywhere. It looks like I have a lot to learn.
Floral arrangement is not one of my talents. I live by the simple Martha Stewart ethos - 50 of anything will look stunning. One day we might even have enough roses to get 50 of something, for now I'm just pleased to have enough to bring inside.
