For The Roses

The scrappy little rose bushes are blooming in the back garden this week. I don't know how they've managed to survive the onslaught of thistle and strangling vines that grow there, but somehow they've made it this far. Not the prettiest rose in the world...probably a knock out rose, with no fragrance but a continual seasonal bloom.

I weed every week, but something tells me it will be a constant struggle to keep the weeds out and give the seeds I planted a chance to mature. Either that, or I will just have to hope that the weeds and flowers can learn to coexist, like one of those cheesy bumper stickers with all the world religion symbols. Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with my garden!

I made this card last week, when Mom and I were playing in the craft studio!

  1. Love your roses card-and the soft look the watercolors give. Your rose is very pretty- I have a bush like that- very loyal and comes back each year even though I am not much of a gardener.
