Climbing Roses 2

While out and about having afternoon tea, I found these lovely climbing roses. Someone has been training them to span across an open space, silhouetted against a backdrop of vineyards and distant mountains.

It’s fun because you find pink roses growing among the red and wonder at first how one bush can have two colours; until you realise it is the second bush growing into the first.

    It is really nice that you can see roses in the out and open. Our weather does not favor roses. The heat “burns” them or we have small blooms. Love the beautiful words that complimented the roses and complemented the photos 😊😉*my pun for the night*😁

      Yes, though I do complain about the temps here, you have way hotter!
      And just as well you pointed out the pun – I’m too tired and just assume it is a typo! – but I’m very impressed – again – at your command of a second language. 🙂
      And Thank you 🙂

      Thank you very much. 🙂 I was just impressed that they managed it, as my own climbing rose has been gallivanting all over the place for years! No training this plant. 🙂
