If you saw my previous flower of the day, you can tell I like roses. They are so beautifully a soft and fragile, so unlike me.
I don’t have the official name for this climber. We planted it last year when we re-landscaped the front of our house. The shrubs had become so over-grown and were a mish-mash (technical term) of many different shapes, sizes and species that we ripped everything out and started over. This nook needed something to accent but not overpower the front door. We found the rose at the nursery and the ladder at a small local consignment/gift shop, very inexpensively too.
We went away for a few days. When we left there were only a few flowers, this is what we came home to see. What a nice welcome home.
