After spending the first few years in our house focusing on the inside, we finally got serious about landscaping the outside last spring and summer. The front of our house looks terrific and Abel gets all the credit. For today's edition of Favorite Things Friday, I'm featuring our rose bush which was a gift for my birthday last year. Our yellow Knock Out rose bush is currently blooming, in what is sure to be only the first bloom of the summer.
A new breed of rose, the Knock Outs are supposed to be low maintenance and resistant to disease. In just one year, this bush has almost doubled in size. We didn't have to deadhead or prune or spray or anything and it looks amazing. I couldn't be more happy with it. If you are looking for an easy and beautiful edition to your landscape this year, I'd strongly recommend a Knock Out rose bush!
