Painting the roses red
We’re painting the roses red
Don’t tell the Queen what you have seen
Or say that’s what we said
But we’re painting the roses red
Yes, painting the roses red
We’re painting the roses red!
Our rose bush has produced a few off-white with a hint of pink roses for as long as we’ve been in our home. This year they’ve been painted red! Figuratively speaking of course. And they’re TONS of them. So many blooms and buds galore!
We learned (cough Googled cough) that rose bushes other than red are grafted onto red ones because they are hardier. After harsh conditions, the plant may revert back to its parent/original stem. This winter was a nasty one…
Hey, we’ll take a bunch for red roses over a few off-white ones =)
