Yesterday, I walked around the back side of my house and this wall of roses is what greeted me! I had planted them in the fall of 2009 to make a blank wall outside our house look more presentable for Jackie's wedding. Last year they bloomed some, but the plants were not very large. I saw these just a little over a week ago and I think they must have shot up at least a foot since then.
Hi, little dragonfly!
The flowers don't have a strong rosy scent, but they sure are beautiful!
