“Green Roses and Ham”

Green Roses

I can’t help but think of the Dr. Seuss book “Green Eggs and Ham” when I see my green roses blooming. “I do not like green eggs and ham I do not like them Sam I am!” I guess I am Sam and I think you could like “Green Roses and Ham”  if you took a minute to look past just the green. I remember the first time I saw a green rose, I knew immediately I had to have it. I am funny like that. Unique flowers excite me and I loved the thought of a green rose. I went straight to my computer, found the one I was looking for and ordered it.  It isn’t a dark green at all, but I find it quite beautiful in my garden planted by my swing.  A lot of people think that the roses are too pale or resemble the greenery already in an arrangement but they are actually a perfect complement for bright colors such as purples, blues. and oranges.  They have a delightful smell and an abundant number of petals. The blooms last a very long time on the bush and after you’ve cut them.  So if you are looking for something a little different to kick up your garden I’m sure you’ll find you just might like “Green Roses and Ham”!
