Rose

Nameless
Grocery store rose
Dusty decoration
expected to die
Sweet peach blooms 
burst forth instead 


This rose was a gift from a friend. It came with no information about how large it will be. It didn't even have a name. Just a tag that said Rose.


 I potted it up and added it to the container garden on my patio steps. It has five buds waiting to open.


It helps disguise the concrete blocks I use to give my pots different heights. The steps aren't wide enough to accommodate wide pots, so I use the blocks as extenders.

  1. Delikata i w ładnym kolorze jest miniaturowa różyczka. Doniczki ustawione, tak jak zrobiłeś ładnie tak wyglądają. Pozdrawiam.
    Delicate and beautiful color is a miniature rubella. Pots arranged as nicely done as they look. Yours.

  9. Without a name of its own you can call it whatever you like - what a special bonus.

  14. What a beautiful stair-top garden! Isn't it always the no-name, no-fuss flowers that outperform the pricey, well-fertilized darlings?

  15. It may not have a name, but at least they got the tag right. And it looks a really nice rose too, whatever its name is.

  17. Well Nameless Rose is beautiful! Love the color, and looks like it's doing well where you put it. I love how the most simple, often generic-sounding, plants tend to do best in the garden. :)

  18. I have a similar orange grocery store rose that comes back every year without fail. It make be humble nameless rose, but it sure has spunk and determination.
