Jan 2011 GBBD and Foliage Follow-Up - My Roses
Currently, I have 3 pots of roses in my garden. Yes, 3 pots with 5 colours. How?
This pot contains 3 rose plants in 3 different colours, i.e. orange, light pink and dark pink. It was already like this when I bought it from the nursery. For the other 2 pots, one is a yellow rose while another is a miniature and of pale purple colour.
“Jan 2011 GBBD and Foliage Follow-Up - My Roses”, a copyrighted post, was written for My Nice Garden blog by Autumn Belle @ http://www.mynicegarden.com/ on January 14th, 2010.
I have created a Table of Contents under the 'Archives' Page on my top menu. It contains a list of all the titles I have posted since I started blogging. It is listed in chronological order and sorted by date. You can also create a 'Sitemap' showing your posts according to groupings, just like the 'Label' Gadget by Blogger. I learnt how to do this from Jacqueline at Jacq’s Blogger Tips*. Her link is here*. Jacq is also a Blotanical member.
Do visit her blog to find out more. She has posted many wonderful blogging tips that are very useful for non-tech savy gardeners like me.
As you already know, I have created a Facebook for Autumn Belle. I am still in the learning stage with not much activity. Last year (I think), I also signed up for Twitter but I hardly use it because I have nothing to tweet.
I have also created a Facebook Page for My Nice Garden. I understand that we can post an unlimited number of photos there. How true is it, I really don't know. The benefit is that we can interact faster and have a 2-way communication with our 'Friends' on Facebook. It is good to keep up with changes in technology.
You can view the My Nice Garden Page which is at the sidebar. If you like my page you can click 'Like' overthere.
As I don't have time to play games at Facebook, please accept my sincere apologies if you have sent any invitations or requests for games stuff and I have not yet responded. I don't even know how to play games there.
When I received my first rose from my darling, (once upon a time, a long long time ago, in a place far far away.....), I didn't want to throw it away long after it had withered. The petals didn't last long but I could keep the dried up leaves as a bookmark. Now that there are many new methods for crafting, I wonder what are the options or best method to preserve these gifted roses for rememberance. Maybe the easiest way is still the digital form.
Do you keep the roses given by your loved ones or do you throw them away after they have wilted?
Now, this post I am linking to a few memes to support my blogger friends.
