Roses at the Farm

I always thought an old farm house needed rose bushes. But we had been told roses were time-consuming to maintain, needed certain soil and lots of attention. So I never attempted to raise roses.  Last year, when landscaping around the new addition to our farm-house, I finally found a goof-proof rose, perfect for my limited skills at gardening.

In amazement, the roses began blooming this year. I assumed the brutal winter had left her mark on our simple plantings. Even last December, with our first snow, we had roses blooming as the snow flakes covered the bushes.
