Twelve Days of Doses – 6

Red Knock-Out Rose, Alcoa, TN

Any of you who have grown roses know that many of them require patient and devoted care to ward off molds, blights, beetles and a host of other afflictions – especially if you are endeavoring to do so without a dose of poison.   Those gardeners who are deeply in love with these beauties labor on for the amazing return gratification of their blooms & scent.  The Knock-Out Rose is a modern miracle that grows big fast, blooms long and prolifically – all without any care whatsoever; save a little water if rain has not been frequent enough.  He comes to us halfway through our ’12 Days’ to offer his radiant red, confident face.  He provides staying power for navigating the remainder of 2011.  Breathe him in, and feel your energy stabilizing…a smile lighting up your heart and your face… Christmas spirit abounding.
