Delicious looking orange and yellow twirls that also gives off a wonderful fragrance. Every time I look at this rose bush I think of a nice cold creamy orange and vanilla flavored Popsicle stick! It also brings me back to a labor of love day, I know you all love my stories, so I will tell you another one today.
A few years ago, for my mother's Birthday, my garden crew and I came over -, that included the boys and myself, Miss T wasn't around yet - to wish her a Happy Birthday. We brought with us bags of premium soil, soil mix made especially for roses, rose care food, shovels, muscles and 11 rose bushes. We removed all the old, worn out rose bushes she had which she had detested and named them "cà chớn", which closely translates to unreliable. They didn't give her flowers, they were old, they weren't growing, they were unhealthy, and they were taking up precious space.
We replaced those "cà chớn" rose bushes with brand new roses of different varieties. There were 11 to represent her eleven kids. Then I gave her a "Matching Mission" to name each rose bush as each of her children according to how she sees the relation based on color, output, and whatever comes to her mind. I placed a yellow rose bush by the garage entry, and named it Amanda, which gave her the first "Matching Mission" example: that the closeness to her home signifies my closeness location wise, and yellow because she told me I liked yellow in my younger years.
A few weeks later, she told me she had completed the "Matching Mission". It was cute, and funny listening to her reasons as to why she chose a certain rose to be a certain child of hers. With that many, I can't remember all her correlations to the rose bushes. I would probably need a pen and paper to take notes, but the one pictured below is another one closer to her tended garden bed, and she named it KQDoan, my sister with the Estsy shop. Enjoy your week.
