Bouquet Of Roses

Posted by terrepruitt on May 22, 2020

Yeah, I’ll just make this month’s Friday Photos all be flowers. Why not?  Especially when I come downstairs and find this vase full of beauties. These are from the rose bush that used to grow white roses.

What do you think?

Mini Roses

Posted by terrepruitt on May 8, 2020

I don’t even remember when or why, but YEARS ago my boss gave me a little mini rose bush in a pot. My husband planted it and has kept it growing ever since. Every time I send her a picture she says she can’t believe it is still alive. It is not only alive by thriving and it is rather large now. My husband brought in some of it’s flowers the other day!

Just as I was about to post this I thought, “Did I post about these before?” And a search on my blog proves that I did, about a year ago I posted Yellow Yard Roses for a Friday Photo.  I don’t remember them having been so big!

Crimson Stinkers

Posted by terrepruitt on April 17, 2020

We’ve had a couple of days of sun which helped with the opening up of our rose. We have two rose bushes. The oranges ones and the “Crimson Stinkers”. I woke up this morning and these were set out for me. I love having flowers in the house.

I am sharing our roses on for this Friday Photo.  How was your Friday?

Picture of Roses Past

Posted by terrepruitt on September 27, 2019

This is a bunch of roses from our yard from way back in 2010. When we have so many flowers in the house the entire downstairs smells like roses. Roses purchased don’t have the same smell – or any smell for that matter – as backyard roses.

I have a ton of yard rose photos so I thought I would use one for today’s Friday Photo.

May Flowers

Posted by terrepruitt on August 2, 2019

Here are some roses that we brought in from our yard roses. I am always so happy with our roses because they are just miracles that grow on their own. I love to bring them in, but I also love to look out and see the bushes full of roses.

Do you cut your roses and bring them in or leave them outside?

Roses in 2019

Posted by terrepruitt on May 3, 2019

These are some other roses in our yard. Every time one of our rose bushes produces roses I am amazed and happy!

White AND Yellow Roses

Posted by terrepruitt on April 29, 2019

When we first moved in we had VERY ORANGE roses, WHITE roses, and light pink roses. Over the years our orange roses have been not-as-orange when they first bloom then they fade to pink. I wrote a post about it – Yard Roses. Well, now our once white roses bush that has been yellow for years is now producing BOTH white and yellow roses. We have not done any type of grafting. But the white roses look REALLY white in the sun. But looking at the pictures they seem light pink.

I think it is odd how the roses have changed colors over the years.

It has been years and I still don’t know how to properly care for the roses. They just grow wild. Whenever I want to cut some to bring them in I do. And whenever the bushes start looking really unruly I hack them down. The last time they got a good hacking my husband had done it. I always have a fear that they won’t come back from such a drastic cutback, but they do.

Here are some pictures of the white and yellow rose bush. Do you see the photo bomber in three of the pictures?

Yellow Yard Roses

Posted by terrepruitt on April 26, 2019

The reason I started my Friday Photo post was to share some of the pictures that really have no place elsewhere. These are roses from a bush that was a little plant I received when I left my last corporate job. I thought I had posted about them before, but it is not coming up in the search. This picture is from 2016, but the bush is still alive and it does produce roses!

An April Yard Rose

Posted by terrepruitt on May 4, 2018

I love our roses. Yeah, I post about them a lot. I take pictures of them on the rose bush. I cut them and bring them in. I take pictures of them in vases. I love them. I was talking to a friend recently who, when I suggested she put roses in her yard, said they are a lot of work. I suppose if you take care of them properly they are. But I don’t know how to properly take care of a rose bush. I am not a gardener. I just like to look at them and cut them and bring them in. That seems to be enough so far.

Here is a rose from our rose bush for today’s Friday Photo.

I love roses.  How about you?

Rose Bush Gone Wild

Posted by terrepruitt on April 7, 2017

I don’t know how to trim rose bushes.  I don’t know how and I don’t know when.  I know there is a specific time of the year to do it and I know there is a way to do it.  I just go out there when the bush is looking ugly and bothering me and I hack at it.  My hubby grabs the dead roses and just pulls them off, but I like to cut them off.  Recently it was looking rather wild so last week I went out and cut off the dead roses and some of the dead branches.  Then we were gone over the weekend and we came back to a rose bush explosion!  So excited.  I went out and cut some roses off to bring inside.  So we have roses in the house.  And the bush still has a lot, so we have roses outside.  I love our roses.  So I am sure this will not be the only Friday Photo of them.

As I said in the beginning; there will be a lot of cats, birds, and flowers.
