Rose-y


It's not all golden around here!
It's 'rosey', too!  I'm glad I brought this little rose bush
in from the frost.  It's not quite done showing off!

  2. Oh how lovely! And what a pretty color too! You really are inspiring, I would probably have left it outside and missed the last few blooms.

    1. I only brought in three potted plants. I usually crowd out the house. haha. This year less is more seems to be my mantra. ;) This one was full of buds...and it's small, so in it came! :)

  3. It would have been a shame to have the frost get to it! Do you favor pink roses?
    Admiring you from afar, Vince.

  6. I think I remember when that little rose bush jumped in your cart...or was that a different one?? I love the stem and rose bud on the left..that's just the way I love a rose..when it's just a bud beginning it's opening. All packed..Just waiting for morning so will settle my excited nerves visiting a few friends.

    1. I like the little buds, too! Yes, this is the one that jumped in my cart. It did pretty well in our little courtyard. Let's see if I can keep it alive inside! Usually dust mites like to devour them. I heard if you hose them off in the kitchen sink they can't take over the plant.

  7. Your plant is lovely. I can't have roses in the house; they're the cats favorite ones to eat!

  8. I adore that shade of pink. I always think that I am not a "pink" girl, yet find myself drawn to the colour. And when I wear it, I get compliments. Yet... I am not a "pink" girl. Go figure. Maybe I am? :-)

    1. I think pink gets a bad rap sometimes. I've always liked it but don't really over do on it. Maybe we're both pink girls! :)

    1. Yes, I brought in this little rosebush, a pretty little fern and a philodendron that went outside for the summer. I didn't have any geraniums this year, but would have brought it in if I had it. ha.

  11. It's a pretty little rose. If I brought it in, it would be the end of it though. I can only keep plants alive outside!

  13. Tis a beautiful shade. You can tell you're an artist cause you have such an eye for capturing colors.
    I love the buds and when they first pop open more so than the big fluffy rose. Not a fan of the scent though or the red rose. So. How will you over-winter the plant inside? I don't do inside plants so I know nothing about how to keep them alive.

    1. well, I don't know about the artist part, but I've always been drawn to color more than anything else like style or form. I agree on the red rose scent! I haven't had the best of luck with roses but I have it in a sunny window and I hear of you rinse the whole plant weekly the dust mites won't take it over. So, let's see what happens!

  16. Roses are strictly outside plants over here, they have to take their chances outside in the cold, so I will be interested to see how yours gets on! I am sure that it will do really well with your tender loving care. xx

  20. I used to do that but finally got a rose bush the aphids didn't like (called a knock-out) and left it outside. It lived and seemed to thrive but I never imagined it would want to grow so large where it was planted. I have had the miniature ones that were about 6 inches tall and brought them inside until they decided to die. One thing I had real good luck with were ferns and spider plants. I had a fern that I had to eventually hang in the pot on a hook in the ceiling and it hung clear down to the floor and was about 4 or 5 feet thick through the middle. I also, at the same time, had a huge spider plant with tons of new spider plants sprouting out and hanging down that hung from the second hook in the ceiling. In the summer time I would take them outside and hang them in the garage and would leave the garage door up. And then I had a garage sale and almost immediately sold the fern for a lot of money, including the too short stand and also sold the spider plant to someone. At the time I made more money on those two plants than everything else i sold in the garage sale. My best luck was with a misting bottle that I sprayed a mist on the plants at least once each day.

    1. You told me to mist my fern one time over the winter and that made all the difference in the world! It was a monster fern...so fun!

      This rose bush was one of those little 6" kind that you pick up at the grocery. It did great outside over the last 6 months. I did read that if you rinse the whole plant once a week that the aphids and dust mites will not take it over. Wish me luck! haha.
