Dead Roses and Baby Apple Trees

 I told my husband "Your mom bought me a dead flower.  I'm not sure how I feel about that."
I was joking, of course.  I hope I can make this sad little rose into a happy little rose.
Its a Parade Rose that they were trying to move out of the store.  It was originally $10.  She bought it for 75 cents!

And for people who are wondering, my little apple tree is doing good!  Its growing real leaves!


  1. I would love to see the rose once you bring it back to its former beauty. I am happy to see the apple seed is growing leaves. Before you know it, you will have to replant your apple tree. In a few years. you will have your own apples.

    I plan on buying a house. When I do, I plan on planting a few fruit trees. I do want and apple tree. What kind of apple tree did you plant? I think I might want a cherry tree. Possibly a pear tear. not sure yet.

    1. The apple the seeds came out of was a red delicious. But from what I've read that doesn't mean the fruit it grows will be the same kind of apple. Apparently apple trees are odd.

      I HOPE I can help that little rose bush thrive. It seems easy enough. I just need to get it a new pot and some shears to snip off the dead roses....

  2. I love the idea of growing your own apple tree! LOVE!

  3. I am so excited to see your apple tree is doing so well! And no doubt you will return that rose to its former beauty.
