My rose for today is this climber All Ablaze. After getting a trellis last year, it seems much happier and is rapidly scrambling up it. The pruning technique with climbers is different than other roses. You must leave long canes to build the framework and secure them to something to establish its shape. Then you simply cut back the laterals every year to force more smaller branches which bear the roses.
Here is the Joseph's Coat near the front porch. If you click on the photo you can see the Black Phoebe sitting on the plant bracket. She is on the porch all the time now incubating her eggs.
And lastly, here is a wonderful peach scented iris that just popped open. I hope you enjoy a peaceful Earth Day and my Rose Challenge here Amongst The Oaks.
