Growing flowers and caring for plants are two of my favorite hobbies.
I bought my first rose last summer and sure enough, it soldiered on throughout the winter with the help of fertilizer and relatively mild temperatures.
I was tickled to find a rose had literally sprung up just in time for Easter, I took the pictures below of my patio flowers. They arrived just in time to herald new beginnings.
