Lisa has been watering this bush by feeding it the remnants of cooking pasta and washing dishes.
One branch of this rosebush took off on a growing tear last year and would have collapsed upon itself, but we tied it to a post, and it seems to have taken to it.
Spring has sprung like mad here in northern Nevada, thanks to the extra rain. The vacant lots on both sides of us are awash with growth including wildflowers. The only place not growing is my flowerbed in front of the house. I think I should have just tossed the California poppy seeds into the surrounding lots and hoped for the best.
