My new gardening obsession

 Last year was lavender, which seems to be doing great by the way! I thought one of them was dead because I wasn't able to get it into the ground before frost so I had left it in it's little pot. But I put it in the ground a few months ago and it has new growth!

Now I'm obsessed with planting roses! I have three that I put in last year, and I've got 5 that I'm going to try to go look at tonight because they are so pretty, at least the pictures online are pretty. I can only get a few because they are kind of expensive, but I love any flowers that smell good.

That is great.  It's hard growing roses here, its something I miss about when I lived in the pacific northwest.

That's excellent! We mostly grow veggies, but watching things grow is excellent!

I love gardening!  It's so nice- when everything starts growing and turning green I feel alive again finally lol.  And I agree I want to see pictures too!

I love gardening too.  I'm actually in a local gardening group.  Next week  I get to go to hear a professor talk about creative gardening.  I think it's going to be about mixing in veggies w/ your flower & ornamental stuff.  Really looking forward to this.  I have a couple lavender plants, they look like hell now but when they pop out of dormancy they'll be beautiful.  Roses take time.  They need about three years to really put on a show.  So worth it.  I don't always feel this way but they say gardeners are the most optimistic people.  Hope I'm not too annoying hear but I can get a bit carried away on this topic, ha ha.

 I'm actually pretty new to gardening, so I love advice and ideas! We have a lot of places that do gardening classes and seminars, I just haven't had a chance to go to any of them yet.
