18+ years ago we made a circular driveway in our front yard and added a circle in the center with petunias and marigolds in it. Then 16+ years ago, we planted a rose garden in the circle.

A couple years ago we removed the center rose bush and put in a flag pole. We transplanted the center bush into a half wine barrel, but the rose bush didn’t make it through this last winter.

Here’s what came up this year!


It’s hard to believe seeds can stay in the soil all of these years and then start growing!
