Roses in my yard, the first wave
This is one of the roses that was already in the yard when we moved in. I don't know its variety, but it is a robust climber. I suppose I ought to prune it back a bit more, to make it bushier, but I can't bring myself to cut back all that healthy cane. Maybe in the fall?
Here is a close-up of the blooms on that rose. I was playing with the photo editor, so the color is a bit saturated...
I do love me some roses. I am still waiting for my new climbing rose and a hedge-type rose to bloom. Pictures of those will follow once they do.
