Each year we eagerly await the arrival of the first bloom of the season. This year, our beautiful earth kind climber, ‘Climbing Pinkie’ blessed us with a first bloom. Soon this shrub will be full of thousands of tiny blooms that will be the delight of those who see it.
This rose grows on our back fence and welcomes friends and neighbors to our garden each year. It always waves to those who pass in the alley. It’s sort of our Drive Thru rose lane.
In other news, We continue to make changes to this tiny garden. We removed a diseased tree, added some real fancy concrete curbing that replaced any number of types of rock and brick we used to keep our bordered beds in check. With the removal of the tree, our bird girl statue needed a new home, so we relocated her to a new spot in the garden. After she was placed, we planted three shrubs of ‘Crescendo’ a beautiful hybrid tea rose named for the Nashville Symphony to surround her.
