Sunday Snaps: Thanks Rain!


You’ve heard the term “Curb Appeal” right? Well my house is a little lacking in that department. Then again I live in Texas and we haven’t exactly been getting tons of rain during the summer.

Well up until about 3 weeks ago that is! Its been raining a couple times a week lately and Nature is coming back to life! The Grass is greener, the bushes don’t look like a bundle of sticks and my rose bush has started flowering again!

Great big, perfect, beautiful roses! Want to know the crazy thing? This bush had WHITE roses in the spring! I don’t know much about roses, or flowers, or gardening for that matter, but I wasn’t expecting pink roses! My hubby’s grandmother planted this bush and nurtured it carefully. I am hoping to learn more about roses and gardening this fall and have a get few veggies planed next spring :)

By this time next year, our curb appeal should be much higher! At least, that’s the plan ;)


  1. Beautiful rose! The only good side to no rain is you don't have to mow the grass!

  2. Beautiful rose! Glad you guys are getting more rain. :)

  3. Hi!! The rose might have changed color due to the PH levels in your soil. Or, if the white was a result in cross genetics (with one of the roots being pink), it may have reverted to a root color. I don't know much about flowers though. I lean towards growing veggies. =)
