A Special First............................

Before he died our friend and neighbor showed me a little plant growing next to one of their Apothecary Roses and said this one is for you and Leonard.  Later I went down and dug it up and brought it home.  This is the first year it has bloomed - I'm sure Ben would be happy.  Diane

That looks like a wild rose. It is always nice to remember a good friend through flowers. xo bean

What a pretty rose. I'm so happy it's blooming for you. That's a wonderful "reminder of him".
Love,

What a blessing this rose will be to you Diane. To help you remember someone you lived near for so long. I'm sure Ben is smiling over it's first bloom.
I loved seeing Rascal and his new haircut laying on your bed!!!
I have been taking photos of my peonies today and will post them soon and was wondering if I could share the Sarah Bernhardt quote too? When I read your last post I was so pleased because I had never seen that quote before and I love it.

What a great rose and story! Reminds me of so many of the plants in my garden and it makes them so much more special. :) Kit
