Garden picture

Belatedly, here’s a picture from my garden, of the old style rose. It’s probably 20 plus feet long.

I’m off tomorrow for the Writers’ Weekend in Seattle. If anyone’s in the area, there’s a public event at a library in Bellevue.

I don’t know if it’s possible to still get into the conference.

I’ll be back later Sunday to see what wenching has occurred.

  1. I LOVE your roses! I’d love them to grow up my terrace wall and appear to cascade down it (prettier than the ivy that’s currently there). Probably take years to grow… hmmm…

  4. Wow, Jo, those are utterly gorgeous! Do they bloom like that all summer or are they just a June bloomer? I am so utterly envious!
    And I like the wall, too. Wish we coudl have them.

  7. Oh Jo, those are glorious, beautiful roses! The fragrance in the yard must be heavenly.
    Like Pat, I’m also curious about how you managed to cultivate that amazing display. Lots of effort and nurturing there!

  10. Jo, the roses are AMAZING!!! And quintessially British, even though it’s Canada. 🙂 It’s very easy to imagine our characters walking in the rose garden and losing their heads to passion as they drink in the intoxicating scents of the blossoms. I feel a scene coming on….

  13. All That’s Past
    Very old are the woods;
    And the buds that break
    Out of the brier’s boughs,
    When March winds wake,
    So old with their beauty are–
    Oh, no man knows
    Through what wild centuries
    Roves back the rose.

  16. Yes, it’s the sort of rose that comes all at once, and when it’s gone, it’s gone.
    But for a while, it’s magical.
    Our neighbors at the back have a rambling rose of some kind that they pay no attention to. It climbs over our fence and I’ve encouraged it into a rather scrubby fir that they also neglect. I’ll see if I can take a picture of that.
