I've had the bushes that grew these roses for probably 25 years, and this is the first time EVAH that I've been able to cut them and put them in a vase. The peachy colored ones are now giving off a rosy fragrance too, and they've never done that before. Both roses came from my grandmother. The white ones were in my gr-great grandmother's yard. I take them with me, to wherever I am living at the time, and when I would normally have given up on them, I just moved them to a different location trying with all my heart to keep them not only alive, but thriving. They are now in large pots in my back yard, getting plenty of sun and TLC from yours truly. And it's finally paying off.
I think I should put them in a nicer vase....no, I'll put them in a nicer VAHZ. Thanks Grandma Willie and Grandmother Wilson.
