I did a project with my Dearly Beloved this past week. I had this Red climbing rose that I planted under the apple tree. I had this vision of red roses blooming with the white blooms of the tree. Well, that never will happen because the tree blooms earlier and the rose simply doesn't want to go up the tree. So I had a dinky little trellis for the rose to go up and then I thought it would latch onto or at least lean into the apple tree to grow. The rose and I were not on the same thought path. It just flopped back onto itself on the little trellis. I couldn't stand to see it. I thought it had so much more potential.
I am also going to get that red and white flower color here. The Viburnum on the left side of the path is blooming along with the rose. Don't you just love those happy accidents. The poor rose had to be disentangled from the small trellis. It was a little shocked at its handling but I hope it will be the better for it.
Plus I will have room on the opposite side to grow another climber. I wish I knew the name of this rose. It blooms only once per year at this time. It has lots of blooms when it does bloom. It is a tough old rose too. It has been moved a couple other times before it landed in this spot which it obviously likes. I am not one to coddle roses either so it gets whatever is being fed to plants around it. Sometimes it gets a little black spot but I don't bother with that. I am usually too busy to notice really.
Do you have a project that you have completed lately?
