We have a climbing rose on our property that is 20 years old. My father actually tried to kill it for a while, but it managed to survive. Anyway, about 4 years ago I began the rehab process on this rose. It hasn't bloomed in 10 years, it's always just been this spindly thing that my father thought should be climbing the bush he planted it in front of. Well it is now partially inside the bush and partially outside of it, and has it's very own trellis, etc. Anyway, I did my daily walk around today to check on everyone, and I happened to notice there is the very beginning of three buds on this bush! After 10 years we've finally gotten it back to blooming status and I am so hyped! I cannot wait for the roses! I will share pictures when they arrive.

The other good news. I have a rose that I call the zombie rose because the bush "died" years ago and mysteriously came back to life about 3 years ago. It also has a bud, first one in a long time. I think it is either white or white with the red splotching, but I'm not sure yet. I am so excited! Thanks for "listening" to me, no one around me gets it.

I totally relate to your feeling I have an olive tree that looked like three twigs and it just sprouted a few leaves. Yay for life!!

No, I figure there's a week or so before any buds open.

Also, update for everyone. The zombie rose is up to seven buds. I don't know what got into it, but it's producing heavy.

Good on you Wildflower. Lovely news. I understand that feeling when people just don't get it. We gardeners do of course
