Also a surprise was the resurrection of my rose bush. My best friend gave me a rose bush as a house warming gift when we moved in. It did really well the first year, but last year wasn't so great and I thought it died completely over the winter. I watched a video online about trimming and pruning rose bushes and tried to do my best to salvage it, thinking there wasn't any hope. Then yesterday, this:
A bud! One large bud and lots of other smaller ones. Not really sure what's up with the few leaves that look blighted. But the new growth is exciting. It's like a zombie plant. I think I'll call it the Undead Rose.
I was even more excited this morning to discover the bud had turned to a bloom.
