Roses Are An Asshole Flower
Oh SURE they look all pretty and delicate.
They are expensive.
But they require ALOT of attention.
They don't do well in Wisconsin.
You have to water them at the base of the stem. It's putsy.
And the prickers HURT.
And today I was told to deadhead them.
And then I clipped the blooms off and got in trouble and was told to clip down to the first joint. And so I did.
And I got in trouble AGAIN.
Because I cut them too short.
Four HOURS of crouching LATER in the hot sun.
After spending TOO much time crouched over these pricky assholes.....
I decided that roses were an asshole flower.
