I'm in! [In reply to] Can't Post

In Texas, there is a group called Texas Rose Rustlers. Their aim is to hunt down antique roses in old farmsteads, cemeteries, and other abandoned or neglected areas. They get permission from the landowner, then take cuttings of these "wild" roses to propagate in their own gardens, thus preserving a bit of pioneer history. And, any rose that not only survives, but thrives, in its neglected spot is a rose worth having.

The "Martha Gonzales" rose that Lily mentions is one of these roses. It was taken from a cutting in a lady's yard. The experts have yet to positively identify it and have concluded that it may be a sport of something else. So they named it after the lady from whose yard it came. I've owned it as well, and it is a tough little beauty.

The sharing of flowers is a lovely way to preserve a garden, even when its original spot is gone. When you have a cutting of a dear friend's flower, or a hand-me-down iris bulb from your grandma, a little bit of them lives on in the plant, and in your memory. Heart

As for the current Eruvande garden, it's a patch of weeds right now. With the construction of the man cave this fall, we've been a little distracted. I've got to get in there soon, though, and get it into shape. Planting season starts next month!



I am SMAUG! I kill when I wish! I am strong, strong, STRONG!
My armor is like tenfold shields! My teeth like swords! My claws, spears!
The shock of my tail, a thunderbolt! My wings, a hurricane! And my breath, death!
