>Re-Birth Of A Rose


This spindly specimen helped re-kindle my love of roses.
This was the only rose on the place when we moved here in 2005.

With just a little care:
Pruning, Water, Fertilizer this rose sprang back to life.
From Fall 2006

It continues to produce some of the largest and most spectacular blooms in our garden.

Isn’t is amazing how roses respond with just a little care?
