During Hurricane Isaac, I got these lovely rose cuttings from txaggiegal, and after I was finally able to wade back into my house, I potted them up and hoped for the best. For my birthday, I got a few new rose bushes during Heirloom's sale.
Since I finally got my front garden bed dug in, and the lovely folks at Nola Green Roots delivered me 4 bags of soil and one of compost, I banished the clover the best I could, and in the nice morning sunshine today, put the successful cuttings and one Heritage into the front garden bed.
Now, to figure out what to do with the rest of the front garden!
Ah, and here's a bonus shot of the unknown-to-me red roses that came with the house. They had been left to their own devices for at least 5 years, but they're in full flush and lookin' good for Mardi Gras!
@txaggiegal - after the storm, I have no idea which is the white and which is the red, but I'm astounded they did so well. Thanks ever so much for the cuttings - I thought you'd like to see they were faring well, and in the ground!
I got a Mme Alfred Carrier for my birthday that I'm trying to find a spot for now. It's been growing like gangbusters.
