Buried Another One

I believe everyone should have a hobby, unrelated to their vocation, that they can enjoy and use to unwind from daily life. I have a couple hobbies one of which I can do only part of the year which is gardening, or maybe landscaping would be a better term since I use not only flowers but also trees, bushes, hardscapes, etc. I love planning and planting things then waiting to see how they all look when their grown.

Recently my two sisters, yes that's them in the picture, gave me a rose for my birthday. I've never worked with roses before so K & D where a great help picking out the right one for me and even helping to plant it, (they have green thumbs too). I can't wait to see it grow and flower, when it does I'll be sure to post some pic's. Thanks Ladies.

It doesn't look like much now but just wait.

I can't wait for it to bloom - I'm sure it will be beautiful!

What? Yours isn't blooming yet?!? Ours has TONS of blooms. [Wink wink.] Your garden is lovely, Bob, and we always come home with ideas!

You do have a real talent with your gardening. I just told Mari the last time I was over how nice the back area was looking.
I think it would be a very nice apology gesture to give me a rose when they start blooming!!!

Unfortunately (or fortunately...) for Aaron, you passed down the gardening/landscaping gene to me because it's already becoming rather an addiction for me. As soon as it gets warm, I get this burning in my veins to go and pick out new plants and find a place for them, move things around, etc. I also have quite a love for container you can see by my front steps... Aaron just deals with it! I can't wait to see how your rose does!
