Loaded

This is one gigantic rose bush. It began as a cutting/transplant from my mawmaws house in Walker in 1998 to my Walker South house. Then when we moved to the wilderness I brought cuttings with me and voila!!
It is two bushes, one on each end of the trellis. There is a bird bath in the middle. You can hardly see the bird bath. The birds are probably too scared to get in the bird bath.

We built the trellis for it a few years ago. The trellis is 6 feet tall. And you can see it is overtaking the trellis. I did trim it way back last summer, and that must have been a good thing. Because just in the last few weeks it has exploded. Exploded with new limbs and climbers, and exploded in pink roses everywhere.

As soon as I get some garden gloves on I will push and shove and twist the limbs and climbers back in the trellis.

I think I have a pink thumb with this one!!
