From Yellow to Red!


Would you believe me if I tell you that the red roses in the picture above use to be a yellow roses? I am not kidding! For five years that rose bush has been blooming pretty yellow roses and this year, well you can see it's red! Is that even possible? That's what I was thinking too! Evidently, it is possible based on what I have researched online. Ok, this is the best possible reason why it turned from yellow to red, this makes really good sense to me. 

Based on my researched online, the rose bush could have been grafted with two different roses, yellow and red. Ok, this rose bush died on me last winter, I dug up the root, I was gonna plant another rose in it's place but I changed my mind, instead I replanted the root back hoping it will come back and it did. So what happened was, the yellow rose grafted with the red rose died and when the rose bush came back, only the red rose survived and that's why the blooms are now red. I don't know if it make sense to you all but it does make sense to me!
