I have a gorgeous rose trellis which climbs up my home and travels across a tethered wire. I love knowing that in a few weeks it will be in full bloom.
Get ready for an onslaught of photos as well as illustrations. :)

Humm, is it possible for one to move into a blog? If I could, I just might move into yours! It's just so pretty!

The roses are beautiful. My garden is really coming to life right now. I may have to find this one and plant it too!
