Cherokee Rose Blooms!
I went out this morning to look to see if something had u Oakley Sunglasses Outlet prooted the rugosa rose again. Fortunately, the rose Oakley Sunglasses Outlet was fine so I took the time to put down two bags of pinebark mulch on the bed next to the fence. That covered about half of the bed. I am hoping the mulch will also help prevent whatever uprooted the bush from doing it again.
As I was walking around to put the empty plastic mulch bags into the trash, I noticed that the Oakley Sunglasses Outlet re were two blooms on the Cherokee Rose that has been growing in the herb bed by the kitchen door for the past probably 6 ye Oakley Sunglasses Outlet ars. This is a bush grown from a cutting I took back in 2006 when I went down to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, to help rebuild some houses after Hurricane Katrina. I took several cuttings and brought them back and tried to root them but only one took. this one. In all these years, it has never bloomed and I was beginning to think I had gotten a sterile cane as a cutting. Boy am I glad to see I was wrong!
