My World Tuesday Season # 2 Episode # 51

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Click to visit other sites.



Last year I bought Yellow Knock-Out Roses and here is the life cycle of the blossoms. You can see all the blooms the plant produces.
 They first start out with a yellow bud with an orange tinge.
 They then open up to a bright yellow bloom.
 They then open up further and still have color.
 The final stage is to turn white and loose their leaves.
I think it is a neat cycle of life.

Very nice. I didn't know they had them in Yellow. I got mine at Lowes. They are knock-out in red and a bright red they are too.

Hi Tom, I thought you must be out-of-town (like we were) since I haven't heard from you on my blog in awhile....

I'm not a Knock-out Rose fan (since we grow the real thing) --but yours is pretty... AND--it was neat showing the life cycle...
