Three years ago I planted this rose bush to honor my friend Michelle. After its initial blooms dropped, it did not bloom in 2014 or 2015 but this year it is in beautiful full flower on the third anniversary of her death. You are so missed, my friend!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
