I haven’t been feeling the craft vibe recently, as you can probably tell from my blog posts! I’ve got a few projects up my sleeve that I want to do soon, but for now, I wanted to share this beautiful rose from my garden with you.

Red Rose

This rose shouldn’t exist. It was already in the garden when we bought our house. We didn’t really do any gardening for the first year as we were busy with the inside. The rose still grew. Then my OH, with no real knowledge about how to care for roses, cut it right back. It survived a really cold winter; a really dry winter; a really wet summer. Most recently, it survived after being almost ripped from the ground during a windy storm. Then a few weeks ago, I noticed that it had buds on it. We packed earth in around the base & made sure we watered it during the heat. After a long & wet drive back from Pembrokeshire this weekend, we arrived home to the flower above. Blooming & bright in the darkness.

I have no idea what type of rose it is or how to look after it. But what I do know is, this rose is amazing and is worthy of being featured as my Tuesday Treat. x
