May I present the rose bush that'll never die!!
Please ignore my unweededness, but until the pollenation of every freaking thing around this area is gone, I can't go out for long periods of time, lest I start wheezing away. Allergy stuff doesn't help, this is the breathing kind. (well, my inhaler helps :) So the weeds, they stay until late May or early June.
It's pretty huh....and it won't ever die...I've dug this bush up a few times and give the plant to the neighbors, but it kept coming back.
Now I give in, trim it every year, and let it go. Interesting, it did start out as a yellow rose, not sure how the red got there...yes, no yellow jokes either!
ETA: Well that explains it! No graft to make them yellow anymore. Thanks for the info everyone!
The Rhododendron I thought was dead. It got a bit frostbit, then came the yearly trimming by the yard person, and then hubby...
back to life....
As for me, looking forward to the weather haze to be gone so I can breathe better outside again. I've been knitting a lot and have progress, but no FO's for a week or more. I'll be a bit stressed as my son leaves port on Wednesday for his 2 month sea cruise. (heh, not a party cruise either) He's pretty excited and glad his first year of college is done! He did pretty well too. We look forward to seeing him on the 3oth of June and I can't wait to celebrate my birthday in my home state!
As for hubby! The arrival of May 4, 2009 couldn't have happened soon enough. My darling hubby has finished his long road of furthering his education and getting us outta here! He'll be getting his Master's Degree in Healthcare Administration and actively looking for a job. Send your job vibes our way, he so needs this boost and to know all his hard work wasn't in vain. In times like these, it could happen sooner or later, who knows. Until then, I'll be here knitting and hanging out :)
