    as usual, beautiful…

    • Thank you, Susan! At the beginning of the summer, I planted two of these miniature rose bushes, they were just about three inches tall, and I was amazed that they flourished and blossomed. Am now hoping that they live through the winter and bring their orange-pink delight back for another season. With love to you and wishing you have a marvelous Monday!
