these roses are pink.

I went outside a couple of nights ago with every intention of photographing some of the growing green things in my backyard.  But these roses, planted by our landlord’s roommate, are so lovely!  I now have dozens of rose photos on my camera, so I thought I would share some of my favorites.

Until next time!

green things 101.

Plants have overtaken our home – both inside and out.  I’ve been planting fruits and vegetables, taking cuttings and waiting for them to sprout roots, transplanting raspberry bushes in our backyard.  I’ve never been very skilled at keeping plants alive, but I’m really trying this time!  Hopefully we’ll have some tomatoes, cucumbers, and berries to enjoy by summer’s end, and I will have enough houseplants to keep myself busy with during the fall and winter.
