Ahhhh---The Promise of Roses!

I love roses, but only have two bushes in this present dwelling's yard.   I find growing them sometimes frustrating (bugs, blight,etc.), but once those buds bloom, I smile and sigh a sigh of bliss.
These two pictures, the one above and the one below, were taken of my biggest rose bush yesterday, May 2, 2010.
The long trailing vines you see in the back of  the rose bush and sticking through it belongs to my climatis that
I hadn't yet tied to the post.
               This picture was taken right after Easter.
This one was taken not long before Easter.
I took a close up of the beginning of the sprouting before Easter.

Great Progress!

  1. There's so much promise in these photos. Looks like you may have some Lamium growing, too.

  2. Roses always make me think of Papa Roy
