We recently spent three days in Temecula, California. During an early morning walk, I saw this lovely white floribunda rose. The photo below shows more of the same plant.
When I started Plum Bird Corner, my goal was to make it a delightful place to visit. I wanted to fill it with beautiful color. While on a walk yesterday I took the above photo of this Cape Plumbago. I think these blue flowers certainly fit the description of beautiful color. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Today was my guitar lesson day. Above you can see my guitar. It’s a Taylor ‘Baby’, and the 3/4 size is perfect for me. A full size guitar is just too big. I learned that many women play the smaller size. In an earlier post I showed a photo of my first guitar. Take a look. I began teaching myself, but finally started taking lessons. Now I actually practice every day. It’s amazing how having a teacher can make you push yourself harder. At least that is how it is for me. I love playing and I’m so glad that I made the move to private lessons and a guitar that fits me perfectly.
My pink miniature rose is blooming. I love miniature roses. They give off a lot of color in a small area. In my last post I showed you my orange miniature rose. See it here. It was beautiful and I thought it was my favorite. Now that the pink rose is blooming I’m not sure which I like the best. Just wait until my red miniature rose blossoms. Then I may really have a problem deciding. Maybe they are all my favorite.
Miniature roses are very popular for both indoors and out. They prefer direct sunlight outdoors and bright light indoors. Their height can be anywhere from 6 to 36 inches. Most bloom continuously throughout the growing season and give you a lot of color in a small space, and are perfect for a small yard or balcony. I gave the above plant to my husband for Valentine’s Day this year, and it’s doing really well. I like to plant our miniature roses outside in the garden. They grow best in zones 4-11 and our growing zone here in this part of Southern California is zone 10. You can see from the photo above, that this newest addition seems to be very happy in its new home. I’m looking forward to lots of beautiful flowers once it’s fully established.
