Birthday Blooms


It’s become a tradition for 52 to give me a rose bush each year on my birthday. These are pink “knock-out” roses. I love them! (And as if a cow wasn’t enough!)


  1. Tina says:

    Happy Birthday, Suzanne! Love those knockout roses. I have a few myself.

  2. princessvanessa says:

    That is a beautiful rose! My birthday was last Thursday and my husband gave me a beautiful white rose bush — I didn’t have a white one. I love growing roses — you haven’t shown us pictures of your rose garden — how many do you have????
    Hope your birthday is wonderful, fellow Aries!!

    Love the Knockouts. They seem to bloom forever too. I have over 40 rose plants in a rose garden out back. For each one I put a rock at it’s base with the name of a friend or family member who has died. I love walking amidst them and thinking of all my loved ones. I have every color imaginable. There is a beautiful rose named Double Delight that is my absolute favorite. It is two-toned…cream and bright pink. It is the best smelling rose in the garden.

  31. Wendy says:

    :sun: How ’bout a little sun for that new rose bush? I love the color! Tell 52 he did “good” this year!
