When Amelia was born (over nine years ago) I planted this beautiful rose to commemorate the occasion. When later we moved (twice in 9 months) the rose came with us in a large tub. This time we are leaving it behind, as it will be a little complicated to extricate, and there is no obvious place, in the sun, to plant it at the new house.
Today I cut these, the first roses of the season, to enjoy them in our last days in our little house. Their scent is divine. If I end up finding a suitable spot at the new house, I will track down an Oklahoma (A rich, dark, red, hybrid tea) rose to plant again.
If not, I will still be able to enjoy them, we will pass the house daily on school days, I just won’t be able to pick them.
We move in 8 days – I am not sure when I will post again – this moving business is hard! Perhaps when I next post it will be from our new house.
