    >What a beautiful, elegant rose!!! I see you are from Birmingham. A million ( well, more like 53 ) years ago, I spent my freshman year at Sacred Heart in Cullman ). I'm originally from Columbus, GA – my last time there was in Feb when I went to visit my mom and found she'd had a stroke. Moved her to an assisted living facility near my brother in the Atlanta area. I've been 33 years now in the San Francisco area.

    >I finally bought an Iceberg rose late this summer. I'd been looking since last year for a Climbing Iceberg and couldn't find one in town. The blooms were small but striking against the back wooden fence. Grasshoppers just about eat half the leaves off. However, the rose bush seems to be recovering and more blossoms have appeared. Can't wait to see how it performs next summer.
