Rambling Rose

This is the climbing rose that attaches itself to our back wall so that it can top the wall and show off for the neighbors.  The geckos love that wall too.  You can see them scrambling across the wall into the shade the rose provides. 

I'm told that it is especially lush this year.  I did  feed it and pruned it a bit in January, so I'm hoping I had a hand in its great season. Although we did have good rains, I suppose I can give nature some of the credit.

It is so good to be able to garden again.  The problem is, I'm on Minnesota seasonal time.  It's now the heat of summer when everything goes dormant and dries out, sort of like winter in Minnesota. But I'm busy planting pots full of blooms.  We'll see if there is enough shade to get them through.

Our move has made many changes in our lives, which makes it worth the time and energy we spent on it.  One thing I do know, it's feeling very good to be painting again.  If you would like more info on this painting, or any of my other work, just click  HERE

So for today it's roses, white roses.  It's always a great day for roses.

What will it be tomorrow I wonder?  We will find out together!
