June Roses

At the end of teaching last year, I was given a miniature rose bush by the family of one of my students. It had gorgeous little deep red blooms on it.

My dad planted it for me, and I (knowing nothing about gardening and especially about roses) just weeded it every once in a while and helped my dad keep it watered. Because of my noviceness (I think I just made up a word) I didn't think I would get any blooms on it.

But the other day Dad casually mentioned that I had two roses on my bush. Out came the camera and here are the results.

Isn't it lovely?

I think I missed this one at its perfectness, but I love it as well.

I am ridiculously happy over these roses. Thank you to the family for the plant.


BTW, is anyone has any helpful tips or resources for caring for roses, I'd be glad to know about them.
