30 Things, 4 Years Later: Day 7

30 Things to Accomplish in my 30s:
#7. Although I am not into gardening at all, I would love to have a rose garden to bring a lovely fragrance and beauty to my surroundings.

A garden-loving friend offered to let me keep a potted rose bush in her yard — so I could say it was mine and could take it with me when I got my own yard — so I got to work, purchased my first rose bush, planted it in a huge pot and then promptly forgot to water it and care for it.

It had two gorgeous red roses that year.

Then it got bugs.

I got busy.

The bush died.

So much for that good idea.

If at first you don’t succeed….

A year ago, I purchased a house with an enormous back yard. It has a fence around it and this year, I’m planting some climbing roses.

I could only afford two bushes this year, but I’m hoping to add to the collection each year until I’m drowning in roses.

We’ll see how that goes.
