Stop and Smell the Roses!
Two years ago my husband decided we needed these Knockout roses for our yard instead of trying to plant annuals every year. It was a wonderful idea and I just love them. The whole yard smells so sweet and there is little maintenance with these. Believe it or not there is a birdbath in the middle of this growth and the birds just love it because of all the cover!
He also planted a pink bush next to the fence and it has flourished. This year it has this on it. What do you think? Maybe it is going back to original color ....they are hybrids. We are going to continue to watch this one and see what it does. The red is so much deeper than the other reds we purchased. Very interesting.
We are hoping it continues with the pinks and reds.....wouldn't that be unusual?
Hope your weekend is going well. We woke up to cloudy skies this morning after brilliant sunshine yesterday. The temp here this morning is 54 and I must say it feels so nice after the hot and muggy days we had been experiencing.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world and remember to stop and smell the roses. You are always welcome here!
