Hello my friends, you've all seen those gorgeous images of rambling roses, right?
Well, why is it when you want them to ramble they seem to have a mind of their own? I planted this cutie 3 or 4 years ago hoping that by now it would have rambled right over the fence.
But, no! It's being defiant and going where it wants to. It reminds me of raising my kids. They didn't always do what I wanted them to do. Maybe I need to put it in 'time out'! :)
Even though my children didn't always mind, I never
gave up trying.
I'm thinking a little string will help it along it's way. Sometimes we've got to steer our loved ones to the right path.
And look at this. Isn't it just breathtaking?
And then there is mine.
Sally, (the name of the rose is Sally Holmes), is independent and demands to stand on her own. No clinging to that post for her!
She's only two years old, so I'm sure with time she will learn to behave better.
She knows she's pretty with her pale peach buds that opens to white and nobody is going to tell her what to do!
Well, my climbers may be misbehaving; but my other roses are minding just perfectly.
They're job is to put on a show of blooms and those that have started blooming, are doing just that.
I love them kissed with dew!
Knock out red rose
Even this baby miniature is getting ready to mind it's mama! (wink)
Well, let's just say that I hope your roses are ramblin and not misbehavin!
