If you missed my post about Witchy Rose, you can read it right here! If you don't want to take the time, let me just tell you that this Queen Victoria rose blooms when she wants to ... only when she wants to. I planted it decades ago and it grew all over the trellis, but it never bloomed ... until my Aunt Evelyn died. It bloomed the next year and I felt like my aunt made it bloom for me! It didn't bloom for years ... until the year my daughter got married. That year it gave us a dozen long stemmed beautiful roses. I cut it down to the ground and had a porch built over it ... thought I'd never see her again and she found her way through the wooden slats .. and bloomed again!
Anyway, I think the rose is haunted ... but in a good way!
This year, I decided I would eat her when two pretty roses bloomed!
