Some friends gave me a beautiful, small, yellow rosebush for my 30th birthday. I was pretty bad about watering it regularly, and it lost all of its buds and flowers. I wasn't too devasted because this is a regularly occuring pattern in my life. I like to say that I have brown thumbs.
Nevertheless, I trimmed the dead parts, repotted it with plant food...and it grew back! It now has three buds that look like they are ready to burst. It's very exciting and a great sign for the decade to come! The only problem is that aphids are aggressively setting up residence on the plant (I'm perplexed, this is an indoor plant - how the heck did aphids find their way to my room?).
Kindda fuzzy but full of Aphids
