These are photo's of some pink Roses that we removed a few years ago at a grave in the cemetery. We don't allow them on the graves because people tend to not take care of them and just let them go wild. They get very tall, after a while and there is nothing more exciting than mowing at 8-10 miles per hour, next to a stone with roses and the wind blows them in your path. Usually it means a trip to the emergency room. We try to contact the people and leave messages at the grave that they need to be removed. If they aren't removed, after a year or so, we pull them and plant them in one of our planting areas. This one failed to grow in the garden so we pulled it and took it to a holding area at our office and gave it a little TLC. Last week, after two applications of fertilizer, and two solid months of rain and intermittent sun it suddenly took off and this is what happened. I took 6 pictures today and I couldn't decide which to put on the blog. Enjoy!
